Surely there is more to this story than a statue?
Surely there is more to this story than a statue?
"Local media reported that Ms Carrasquilla did not know the reason she was asked to resign, but believed it was "related to the complaints over the lesson."
Another hyped up story the media picks up and runs with before verifying or checking the facts.
"On Thursday, Florida's governor, Ron DeSantis, moved to expand a law that banned public schools from teaching sexual education and gender identity"
A non sequitur thrown in that had nothing to do with the story but was intended to whip up the frenzy.
I'm not American, but for you that are - could this be true? Would the David be considered pornography in America? I remember turning the corner and seeing it for real and the hair stood up on my arms, it's so incredible.
The woke principal deserved to be terminated. Showing a statue of a white man with a small penis is designed to make white children feel shame about their heritage. Disgraceful. If kids are exposed to nude art pieces of white men in school, the subjects should be fully hogged out.
Kinda sus, dude.
The far right lunatics are inconceivably ignorant. Some of the things people say just leave you scratching your head. You can't even respond it would be like trying to discuss politics with a 6 month old baby babbling away.
Is it really a non sequitur to link a Governor prohibiting forms of sex education to a principal fired for her school showing something considered overtly sexual?
Just stupidity maybe?
Unfortunately that's a hard YES.
If you sit in some evangelical churches in florida you would know that this hysterical propaganda about Grooming of their children by Satanic forces is real. DeSantis is trying to cash in politically with this group. I should say his wife is because she is the real driver of his political viewpoints and the authoritarian in the household. On top of that these right wing nut jobs have been emboldened to take back their schools and are active in school boards. They are causing true educators to flee. That is precisely what the right wing wants. Trump just yesterday said he would have dismantled the board of education if he did not lose the election.
The right wing is not a friend of this country. They are destroying the country under the banner of "making America Great again".
In Florida, you couldn’t even have students read the article that was posted because BBC makes many conservatives uncomfortable.
Yes, the Left Wing is not a friend of this country. This is what left wing liberals are trying to do to children in schools. What the OP posted is nothing, this is 100 times more serious. Let's see if you are unbiased and respond correctly, OR, you try to justify this short video on what is happening due to the LIBERAL teachers and schools in our country. You'll surely excuse this, which is sick!
BIDEN SUPPORTS THIS, which is precisely what the left-winger nut jobs like you want.
As a moderate with mostly Libertarian views in FL, DeSantis is doing a really good job I’m FL. He was integral in fixing our insurance crisis recently. Our former laws had FL creating 78% of insurance lawsuits in the country with approximately 8% of claims.
As far as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. It’s a parental rights law that prohibits discussion of sexual orientation for kids 5-9 years old. That doesn’t seem controversial to me as a father of 2 kids. Both of my kids are teens, so they are free to hear about all sexualities and gender identities. I’m not at all religious, but I there is plenty of evidence that 2 parent households produce better results for children, even if both parents are same sex or other gender identities.
He was also great during COVID about keeping the economy open.
I’m sure there is pretty of debate about the first 3 items, with each side having their own skewed opinions that will be presented as fact. The irrefutable fact is that FL is growing at near record pace. The second fastest growing state based on the last time I looked at the data, and FL is projected to grow another 16-18% over the next 5 years. Most of the growth is coming from the Northeast and Midwest.
It is no longer a cheap place to live, especially in the places that are growing (Miami, Palm Beach, and Tampa/St. Pete), yet people still want to live here and retire here.
This is definitely their long term playbook. In VA, we have DeSantis’s Mini-Me-in-a-vest, who is trying to raise the scores needed for students to pass standardized tests. Many states have done this previously, it has has been proven that it has no positive effect on student performance. If a passing score is 400, and you raise the score to 425, a kid who would have gotten a 350 is still getting a 350 regardless.
But the goal seems to be to have fewer kids pass the tests. This means graduation rates go down. That means schools lose accreditation. If enough schools lose accreditation, you can claim that public education is broken and privatize the whole thing. This will create a wider gap between families that can afford these private instructions and families who will just need their kids to enter the workforce at earlier ages and drop education. Real Victorian era BS.
Any time you see the words “Republican” and “schools” in the headline of an article, know that the end goal is to break the education system so that minorities, the poor, and the disabled are not able to get access to education.
Your whole post is total BS. Right wingers are not trying to break the education system, the left wingers are with their NUTTY sexual content for elementary kids as young as 5!!!!! YOU support that? What a freakazoid!!!!
I'm not in FL, so who can't say gay? 5-9 year old kids? Their parents? Their teachers? What happens if a 5-9 year old asks why their classmate has two moms? Don't say they are both moms? I don't get whats going on there.
If what you believe about left wingers is true, then why would they want to break the education system? Wouldn’t that cut off their pipeline of kids to groom? Seems illogical.
Don’t know if you’re serious or not. There’s no “don’t say gay” in the bill, that’s a media term that I used. It says schools can’t teach gender identity and sexual orientation prior to 4th grade.
There’s no legislation about what kids talk about amongst themselves.
Finally, some sanity in here. FL is THE place to be right now simply for its kids and family first environment. You can thank DeSantis for that. If they could only figure out a way to relocate Miami-Dade county to California, it would truly be heaven.
