(FreedomBeacon.com)- The latest indication that Governor Ron DeSantis intends to use school board elections in the 2022 cycle as a political issue is the release of his “education agenda” on Thursday.
The DeSantis Education Plan provides a policy agenda that focuses on student success, parental rights, and curriculum transparency, with the tagline “Putting Parents First, Protecting Parents’ Rights.”
According to the website, the DeSantis Education Agenda is a student-first, parent-centered initiative focused on setting Florida’s children up for success. It ensures parental rights in education and combats the woke agenda from infiltrating public schools.
This statewide agenda is intended to recruit applicants for school board positions who will be dedicated to addressing these issues at the local school board level.
The website has polls and surveys to fill out.
Respondents to the study were asked whether they favored workforce education, increases in teacher salary, or the idea of pupils being locked out of school or subject to forced masking.
Another inquiry asks what your school system should do to better prepare kids as citizens better.
It asks how you would defend a parent’s right to openly disagree with their school board when dissent is under attack.
DeSantis noted that during the pandemic, angry parents questioned school boards and were discouraged from doing so by the Joe Biden administration, and then they were characterized as “domestic terrorists.”
This was especially problematic considering “red flag” laws regarding gun control seeks to keep firearms out of the hands of “domestic terrorists.”
Also known as “soccer moms.”
Last summer, the governor promised to prioritize school board elections and pledged to go up against School Board candidates who disagreed with his educational reforms.
DeSantis said he would not endorse any Republican candidate for the School Board that supports critical race theory or favors forced masking of school children.
DeSantis states that local elections are critical, and he will get the Florida political apparatus involved.
This horrifies the left because it’s precisely what they have been doing for decades.
