DeSantis fights to improve education, even teachers agree with his ideas
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has made education the centerpiece of his agenda going into re-election this November.
In late March, DeSantis signed the Parental Rights in Education bill, setting off a national debate about education and whether children should be taught Critical Race Theory or LGBT ideology. DeSantis was at the forefront of the debate, making Florida the model state for conservatives.
DeSantis’ education policies have been largely vindicated by Americans and Floridians alike.
Polls conducted in the United States and the state of Florida have found that voters approved of the Parental Rights in Education Act.
A recent poll conducted by, surprisingly, a national teacher’s union also looked good for DeSantis’ view of education.
The poll found that voters, by a 32 percentage-point margin, said they were more likely to vote for candidates who believe public schools should focus less on teaching race and more on core subjects. The poll also found that voters approve of the Parental Rights in Education act by a 27-point margin. By 28 points, the poll said that transgender athletes should be banned from competing in girls’ sports.

After passing the Parental Rights in Education Bill, DeSantis has taken his fight against far-left indoctrination in K-12 education in to the trenches.
He has taken the nearly unprecedented step of handing out endorsements to school board candidates across the state.
In late June, DeSantis gave ten school board candidates his endorsement. Among them was Bridget Ziegler, the co-founder of Moms for Liberty, and Mildred Russell, a DeSantis appointee who led the charge against a pro-masking superintendent.
We need strong local school board members who are committed to advancing our agenda to put students first and protect parents’ rights.
I am proud to endorse 10 local school board candidates who will set our children up for success.https://t.co/6Jb5HaaUhI pic.twitter.com/UytFojOY2p

Fresh off his first ten endorsements, DeSantis gave three more school board endorsements on Friday.
DeSantis endorsed Jill Woolbright, Jamie Haynes, and challenger Christy Chong.
Woolbright received national attention last year for attempting to remove a book that pushed identity politics with regard to sexuality and race.
Haynes is currently the Vice-Chair of her school board but is facing a competitive primary with multiple challenges. DeSantis’ endorsement will no doubt boost her campaign significantly.
If successful, DeSantis will once again be a conservative trailblazer by getting in the trenches to help win school board races across the state.
