Across the country, politicians are wringing their hands trying to figure out what went wrong.
Test scores are down, students are lagging, and parents are furious.
But Ron DeSantis was vindicated after this report came out showing Florida’s kids are killing it.
Teachers union bosses, colluding with left-wing politicians from both parties, literally shut down education over COVID.
This happened, even though “the science” showed children were among the least likely to either get COVID or be adversely affected by the virus.
It has long been the dream of union bosses to find a way to have their members be paid without having to work.
After all, their number one goal is forced dues to fill their political coffers.
Fortunately, a few GOP Governors dared to stand up against the union bosses and COVID Karens.
And at the top of that list was Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida.
Recently NAEP (the National Assessment of Educational Progress) put out its most recent Report Card on education in America.
It showed a nationwide disaster.
The Wall Street Journal called it “The School Lockdown Catastrophe.”
But there was some sunshine in an otherwise stormy outlook.
Florida was one of the rare states to actually see good news.
And Governor DeSantis tweeted out the results of the NAEP’s report card in Florida.
We kept schools open in 2020, and today’s NAEP results once again prove that we made the right decision.

As DeSantis pointed out, Florida led the nation in making the right decisions on COVID.
DeSantis opened the schools and forced teachers union bosses to allow teachers to actually do their jobs.
And what do you know, when schools stay open, and children are learning, they actually perform better on tests.
Of course, the Democrats and COVID Karens aren’t about to change their views on lockdowns and forced vaccines.
In fact, DeSantis’ Democrat opponent, liberal Charlie Crist has tried to attack DeSantis for his actions during the COVID scare.
Unfortunately for Crist, his attacks have fallen on deaf ears.
And DeSantis has fired back.
Governor DeSantis put students first. @CharlieCrist is a puppet for the special interests pulling his strings… like the teacher union bosses. Charlie would have locked kids out of school for 18 months, then forced them to cover their faces & get shots.pic.twitter.com/6mJmZDB5Je

What is most amazing about all of this is that DeSantis is merely using facts, truth, and science to combat the radical Left.
And his comments about Crist are merely using Crist’s own words against him.
DeSantis does have a lot of backup for his positions as seen by the NAEP Report Card.
Florida’s fourth graders were number one nationwide in both reading and math.
And the Sunshine State’s 4th and 8th graders scored their highest scores ever.
On top of that, the charges that DeSantis was going to commit mass murder for reopening schools and businesses never came true, of course.
In fact, Florida weathered the COVID pandemic far better than socialist California, New Jersey, or New York where the elderly were herded into death chambers by disgraced former Governor Andrew Cuomo.
It turns out that freedom, individual liberty, and following the actual science do work.
No wonder Charlie Crist is trailing DeSantis in the polls by a wide margin.
They say insanity is when you do the same thing over and over knowing it doesn’t work.
That is today’s Democrat Party.
