PUTTING KIDS FIRST AND PROTECTING PARENTS’ RIGHTS
PUTTING KIDS FIRST AND
PROTECTING PARENTS’ RIGHTS
Florida led the way by putting students’ needs first. In the summer of 2020, when the media and teachers’ unions advocated lockdowns, Governor DeSantis kept our schools open. As a result, millions of students in Florida did not experience the same learning loss as locked-down states.
“In Florida, we are taking a stand against the state-sanctioned racism that is Critical Race Theory. We won’t allow Florida tax dollars to be spent teaching kids to hate our country or to hate each other.”
– Governor Ron DeSantis
EDUCATION, NOT INDOCTRINATION
WORLD-CLASS HIGHER EDUCATION SYSTEM
Florida boasts five of the top 100 public universities in the country and charges one of the lowest in-state tuitions in the nation for public four-year institutions. Governor DeSantis expanded eligibility for the Bright Futures Scholarship Program to ensure our best and brightest Floridians can pursue higher education, and for four straight years, he banned tuition hikes for Florida colleges and universities. The Governor is also holding educators accountable by requiring tenured faculty to undergo a review every five years.
