Ron DeSantis And Florida Ban Teaching on Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation in ALL Public School Grades in Expansion of The “Don’t Say Gay” Bill
- Florida’s Education Department approved a rule on Wednesday that expands Ron DeSantis’s so-called ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law
- It now prohibits the teaching of gender identity and sexual orientation in all public school grades
- Although not a presidential candidate – yet – DeSantis is visiting the early primary state of South Carolina
Educators in all Florida public schools for all grave levels will now be banned from teaching students about gender identity and sexual orientation in a sweeping move announced by Ron DeSantis’s board of education on Wednesday.
The move marks a huge expansion of the The Parental Rights in Education law – also dubbed the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill by critics – which was signed last year by the governor and sparked a firestorm across the country. Critics of the policy claim it could harm children who identify as gay and transgender.
While the previous version of the law prohibited instruction of these topics to children ages 5 through 8, and the expansion would now apply to students up to the age of 18.
