Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is making it clear his state has no plans to include critical race theory in its curriculum.
“Florida civics curriculum will incorporate foundational concepts with the best materials, and it will expressly exclude unsanctioned narratives like critical race theory and other unsubstantiated theories,” DeSantis said during a press conference Wednesday.
He continued, “Let me be clear there is no room in our classrooms for things like critical race theory. Teaching kids to hate their country and to hate each other is not worth one red cent of taxpayer money. So we will invest in actual, solid true curriculum and we will be a leader in development and implementation of a world-class civics education.”
