Teachers unions have become a political arm of the Democrat Party.

Politics come before the needs of the teachers they claim to represent.

And the Big Labor bosses at the teachers union were fuming over what Ron DeSantis told parents about their child’s education in Florida.

Teachers Unions and Democrats

For years, teachers unions have been more interested in playing politics than representing the teachers and helping the students they claim to care so much about.

But the pandemic exposed many parents to the left-wing indoctrination taking place in their children’s classrooms.

When school closures forced children to bring their work home, parents were floored to see Marxist-based Critical Race Theory and other left-wing garbage in their curriculum.

And at the center of the effort to push the left-wing narrative on children are the teachers unions.

The teachers unions also drafted the CDC COVID guidelines for the Biden administration that recommended school closures and mask mandates.

Reforming Florida’s education system has been a top priority for Governor Ron DeSantis.

DeSantis signed legislation prohibiting the teaching of Critical Race Theory in Florida’s schools and expanded parental rights in the classroom.

He protected the integrity of women’s sports and banned teaching gender and sex to children in kindergarten through third grade.

Of course, the teachers unions fought DeSantis every step of the way.

But what really set their hair on fire was the universal school choice legislation he signed into law.

School choice allows parents to use state-funded vouchers to send their kids to private schools, which prevents children from being trapped in failing government schools.

The school choice legislation signed by DeSantis removed the income caps and expanded vouchers to all students in the Sunshine State.

On Wednesday, DeSantis spoke at the Freedom Institute of Collier County about the success of his school choice program in its first year.

The Freedom Institute is one school that has benefited from the legislation DeSantis signed expanding school choice.

DeSantis said it is part of his commitment to education.

“It does grow out of our commitment to education in the state of Florida,” DeSantis said. “We’re proud to be a state that has embraced education choice for parents.”

“Every parent should have meaningful options for their child’s education,” he said. “Not every school is gonna work for every kid,” he continued. “This is a huge thing in the state of Florida and we’re happy today that we’re able to do even more to make people’s dreams become a reality.”

The legislation gives parents access to money for their children’s education, including tutoring and other important things.

“Parents are going to be able to have the ability to get money for their student for their child, and they can do tuition, they’re also going to be able to use it for things like tutoring and other things that can be very important for a child’s development and well-being,” he said.

The teachers unions hate school choice because it removes their monopoly over the educational system.

And Ron DeSantis’ commitment to school choice and parental rights makes him a top enemy of the Big Labor bosses at the teachers unions.
