Much like Governor of Virginia Glenn Youngkin, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis & Co. are attempting to rid their state of woke policy initiatives and controversial CRT teachings.
According to the Daily Wire, “The Florida Senate’s education committee…moved forward [with] a bill banning businesses and schools from pushing woke diversity, racial, and other controversial ideas on employees and students.”
“The bill, backed by [DeSantis], passed the Senate Education Committee in a 6-3 party line vote, with Republicans voting in support and Democrats against. The legislation, named ‘Individual Freedom,’ was written and introduced by GOP Sen. Manny Diaz, Jr.
The summary of the bill specifies that “subjecting any individual, as a condition of employment, membership, certification, licensing, credentialing, or passing an examination, to training, instruction, or any other required activity that espouses, promotes, advances, inculcates, or compels such individual to believe certain specified divisive concepts constitutes unlawful discrimination.”
“The bill defines individual freedoms based on the fundamental truth that all individuals are equal before the law and have inalienable rights. Accordingly, the bill requires that instruction, instructional materials, and professional development in public schools be consistent with principles of individual freedom.”
