advanced in order to ban teaching certain ideas about race and history.The rule reads:"Instruction on the required topics must be factual and objective and may not suppress or distort significant historical events, such as the Holocaust, and may not define American history as something other than the creation of a new nation based largely on universal principles stated in the Declaration of Independence."
The rule came as part of a broader push by DeSantis and other Republicans to eliminate what they say are manifestations ofcritical race theoryin schools. DeSantis' office told Fox News that the rule excludes the term"critical race theory" because"CRT isn't the only issue."
"No child should be classified as a ‘victim’ or ‘oppressor’ based on their race or ethnicity," said DeSantis press secretary Christina Pushaw. DESANTIS CONDEMNS CRITICAL RACE THEORY, SAYS IT WON'T BE TAUGHT IN FLORIDA CLASSROOMS"Race essentialism in any form is destructive, especially in a diverse society where each person should be judged only by the content of their character, not the color of their skin." headtopics.com

Racism is alive and well. Keep up the white washing of history! Bless their hearts RACISM AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL!!!! 'Republican Board of Education'... That's as much of an oxymoron as 'Educated Republican Voters'. If I still lived in Florida, I’d simply tell my kids that Ron is the racist to avoid. Republicans don't like hearing the truth. They can't have their cult listening to facts
This disgusts me. How a group of white Americans in Govt can conspire to hide history is criminal. A huge win for society, for all of us. I'm enduring THIS to take notes.... Because IF someone happens to ask me about THIS around a LATER TIME I WILL BE TRUTHFUL!

Prep school teacher quits job over critical race theory, says it creates 'hostile culture of conformity''In my professional opinion, the school is failing to encourage healthy habits of mind, essential for growth, such as intellectual curiosity, humility, honesty, reason, and the capacity to question ideas and consider multiple perspectives,' wrote former teacher Dana Stangel-Plowe. Not wrong 😑 She is a racist. I guess explaining inequality is hard so they opt to present the kids with the notion that oppression of certain groups doesn't exist and then these kids grow up wondering why the world around them is crumbling faster and faster.

Nevada Family Alliance wants teachers to wear body cameras to keep critical race theory out of schools'If police do a better job interacting with the public when they are wearing body cameras, how much more important is it for teachers to do the same?' the Nevada Family Alliance asked. please someone, without some snarky ass comment, explain to me what is so wrong with critical race theory? anyone For Christ’s sakes this is beyond ridiculous- signed a 25 year AP US History teacher. Wait... Is this because Police have to wear body cameras so we can tell when they’re killing someone out of fear or negligence rather than self defense or preservation of human life? Body cams to make sure teachers don’t tell kids Racists ruled the country for generations? 🤷♂️🤷♂️
