    Default Florida board votes to ban critical race theory from state classrooms

    https://www.orlandosentinel.com/news...alq-story.html
    Florida adopted a new rule Thursday to prevent public schools from teaching critical race theory, a push led by Gov. Ron DeSantis as a way to prevent history that would “denigrate the Founding Fathers” from being taught in state classrooms.

    DeSantis, following a national conservative playbook, said he wanted to prevent instructors from “teaching kids to hate their country.”

    It’s an effort to white-wash, cover-up and candy coat history,” said Ben Frazier, president of the Northside Coalition of Jacksonville. “Allow teachers to speak the truth.”


    The governor, speaking via a video connection, told the State Board of Education that he does not want to stop children from learning about slavery or the civil rights movement, only to make sure they don’t hear “narratives that are not grounded in facts.” He wants to prevent, he has said, students from learning a “false history,” where they “look back and denigrate the Founding Fathers, denigrate the American Revolution.”

    In his short address, he offered no instances where Florida teachers had offered inaccurate history lessons but cited problems in schools in Arizona and New York.



    The board voted on the rule after hearing from the governor and more than 30 speakers. Florida is among more than a dozen Republican-led states seeking this year to ban critical race theory from its schools.

    Critical race theory, initially a legal framework that examined how racism impacted the country’s institutions, is not a topic taught in Florida’s public schools, nor was it mentioned explicitly in the initial proposed rule, though DeSantis said it would block its teaching.

    That BS will not sully FL classrooms!

    I think it hasn't yet.

    FL schools have always been pretty good.

    Back in the day there was a Florida History class. That was pretty neat!

    There were black crackers. Escaped slaves that came here and herded cows for ranchers. And they were protected by the towns and employers from "northern" slave catchers.

    Even if from GA.

    Anything N of St. Mary's river is "northern" from here.

    Board member Tom Grady proposed amending the rule to add the phrase critical race theory, saying teachers cannot “distort” history nor rely on materials like The New York Times’ 1619 Project, which sought to “reframe” American history by putting slavery “at the very center of our national narrative.” The project faced fierce criticism from former President Donald Trump and some historians.

    The amended version of the rule was adopted unanimously. It applies to the state’s traditional public schools but not charter schools — public schools run by private groups — as by law charters are exempt from Florida’s rules related to required instruction.

    Jacob Oliva, the chancellor for K-12 education at the Florida Department of Education, said the rule would make sure teachers follow state academic standards and do not “go rogue” in their classrooms.

    Why does Desh hate people of color?

    Quote Originally Posted by Legion View Post

This is, indeed, the American version of the Chinese Cultural Revolution.”

    Given one minute to speak, the Chinese woman wasted no time getting to the point. “I’ve been very alarmed by what’s going on in our schools. You are now training our children to be social justice warriors and to loathe our country and our history. Growing up in Mao’s China, all of this seems very familiar. The Communist regime used the same critical theory to divide people; the only difference is they used class instead of race.”

    “During the Cultural Revolution, I witnessed students and teachers turn against each other,” she recalled. “We changed school names to be politically correct. We were taught to denounce our heritage. The Red Guards destroyed anything that is not Communist: old statues, books, and anything else.”

    She pointed out that in China during the Cultural Revolution, students were also encouraged to report on each other: “We were also encouraged to report on each other, just like the Student Equity Ambassador program and the Bias Reporting System.”

    She concluded, “This is, indeed, the American version of the Chinese Cultural Revolution. The Critical Race Theory has its roots in cultural Marxism. It should have no place in our schools.”
