Florida Strikes Back at Identity Politics in Education
Folks, the great state of Florida has taken a bold step against the indoctrination of identity politics in education. Senate Bill 266, recently passed by both chambers of the state legislature, aims to cut through the ideological noise and preserve the essence of American values.
The bill requires the establishment of faculty committees to review general education core courses, ensuring they don’t distort history or promote divisive theories. Instead, it calls for an emphasis on the fundamental principles that make this nation great: hard work, meritocracy, and individual freedom. These values are the bedrock of our society and must be preserved for future generations.

I commend the Florida lawmakers who have recognized the importance of safeguarding our educational institutions from the dangerous influences of divisive narratives.
While some Democrats in the House opposed the bill, state GOP Rep. Alex Andrade rightly pointed out that diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives have done more harm than good in our schools. Our students deserve better. They deserve an education that fosters independent thinking and intellectual growth.
The bill now moves to Gov. Ron DeSantis’s desk for his signature, and I have no doubt that he will do what’s right for the people of Florida.
As he gears up for a potential presidential run in 2024, it’s clear that DeSantis understands the importance of restoring pride and unity in our great nation.
