After his big win on Election Night, Ron DeSantis has won yet another victory over the Left.
The progressives in the education system wanted to indoctrinate children.
But now DeSantis has shut that down completely.
One of the biggest political risks that Ron DeSantis has taken was his decision to go all-in on the fight to take over school boards and stop the indoctrination of children.
He endorsed candidates all across the state of Florida. Some of them were long-shots, and if he had lost those races, it would have made him look bad.
But he did not lose. His endorsement carried the vast majority of them to victory. And now the people of Florida are reaping the rewards for this bold move by Ron DeSantis.
These school board members that DeSantis got elected are now firing and replacing “woke” superintendents who were intent on feeding progressive propaganda to young children.
According to the Washington Examiner, “The Florida school board members endorsed by Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) during the 2022 election have fired or forced out multiple district superintendents almost immediately after taking their seats on their respective boards.”
The article continues, “In the lead-up to the 2022 election, DeSantis endorsed a host of conservative school board candidates, the vast majority of which went on to win. Now, barely settled into their new positions, these new conservative school board members have made their presence felt, with several boards moving to fire their district superintendents.”
This is a seismic political shift. For years, the Left has had almost complete control over the education system in America.
In recent years, they have been far more aggressive about using that power to try to convert children to their Left-wing cause.
And while most teachers are good people who just want to see children do well, many administrators now believe that their job isn’t to educate children but to make them into Left-wing activists.
But in a number of school districts in Florida, those administrators are now being replaced. The jig is up for them, and the main purpose of education now in those places will be math, reading, and writing – not Left-wing political activism.
According to the article, “On Tuesday, the Sarasota School Board approved a motion to begin severance negotiations with district superintendent Brennan Asplen, making a clear statement that the board’s new conservative majority intended to take the district’s policy in a different direction.”
“Similarly, the Brevard County School Board announced they would be reassessing the contract of district superintendent Mark Mullins immediately after two new board members were sworn in last week. Mullins agreed to resign and enter severance negotiations rather than be expelled from his post by the board.”
Hopefully this will send a message to school administrators nationwide that their job is to educate children, not to feed them a political agenda.
And furthermore, this is yet another massive political victory by Ron DeSantis, who continues to lay out a roadmap for how to defeat the Left and restore liberty.
