“Trying to support her son as a single mother, she worked as a pimp, prostitute and….”
The Dems have been after Florida and against De Santis for a very long time. And after the start of CO ID, when the ‘Sunshine Governor’ has done anything in his power to keep the state and the businesses open – they started resenting him even more. Because he won the support of the people and saved many private businesses.
But, DeSantis didn’t stop there as recently he signed the Parents’ Rights in Education Bill. Again, causing backlash from the left, the Florida Department of Education has now rejected 54 math textbooks for “attempts to indoctrinate students.”
Claiming that the textbooks included reference to critical race theory, 54 out of the 132 textbooks presented were rejected by the state. For those who might not know, CRT is a framework that allows history to be taught from the viewpoint of racism. While Florida officials did not give a list of the books that were rejected, DeSantis’ Press Secretary, Christina Pushaw, tweeted a picture of a math assignment given out in Missouri. It included elements of sexual abuse, prostitution, and drug use.
ushaw wrote in her tweet, “How does this help kids learn algebra, exactly? No wonder China is winning…” She added, “So instead of having a hissy fit because @GovRonDeSantis banned CRT math textbooks, ask yourself why CRT is being injected in math instruction to begin with? I promise you, in China kids aren’t learning about pimping in math class.”
In the video below, DeSantis spoke of the issue and didn’t debate the subject material but how math was about teaching children the right answer and nothing else. He said, “You do have things like social and emotional learning and some of the other things that are more political in our view. First, it doesn’t meet the standards. But second, math is about getting the right answer. And we want kids to learn to think so they get the right answer. It’s not about how you feel about the problem, or to introduce some of these other things, there’s a right answer, and there’s a wrong answer. And we want all our students to get the right answers.”
