The radical Left is pushing Critical Race Theory and other forms of woke ideology in classrooms all across America.
Some Republican Governors are fighting back.
And Ron DeSantis fired back at leftists who were crying about Florida rejecting woke math books.
After he declared 2022 the “Year of the Parent” in Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis is following through on his promise by leading the fight against the Left’s attempt to indoctrinate children with their radical woke ideologies.
DeSantis issued an order prohibiting the teaching of Critical Race Theory in Florida’s schools and classrooms, while also giving parents the ability to sue school districts who violated his order.
He signed the Parental Rights in Education Bill into law, which makes it illegal to teach the transgender and homosexual agenda to children in kindergarten through third grade.
DeSantis also signed HB 1467 into law, which “requires school districts to be transparent in the selection of instructional materials, including library and reading materials.”
As DeSantis Daily previously reported, on Monday, Ron DeSantis announced that 71 percent of math textbooks from kindergarten through fifth grade had been rejected under Florida’s new law.
DeSantis noted that Florida recently approved new teaching standards attempting to root out traces of “Common Core” in the state curriculum.
“Math is about getting the right answer,” DeSantis said at a press conference in Jacksonville. “We want kids to learn to think so they get the right answer.”
“It’s not about how you feel about the problem or to introduce some of these other things,” DeSantis argued. “There’s a right answer and there’s a wrong answer,” he continued, before adding “and we want our students getting the right answer.”
Of course, the radical Left and members of the corporate-controlled media are furious at Ron DeSantis for rejecting 71 percent of the math books.
But Ron DeSantis has proven time and time again that he isn’t swayed by the Left’s nasty attacks and smears.
And in a post on social media, DeSantis doubled down on his opposition to teaching the Left’s woke ideology in Florida’s classrooms.
“Math is about getting the right answer, not about feelings or ideologies,” DeSantis wrote.
“In Florida, we will be educating our children, not indoctrinating them,” he added.

The Left indoctrinating children with radical ideologies like Critical Race Theory was the driving force behind the wipeout Democrats faced last year in Virginia’s state-wide elections.
Ron DeSantis is seen as the leader for the majority of Americans who oppose indoctrinating children with Critical Race Theory and the Left’s radical gender ideology.
And that is why polls show he is wildly popular with Republicans nationwide, and now enjoys the same approval rating as Donald Trump.
