DeSantis Waives Teaching Requirements As He Moves To Hire Retired Cops, Enlisted Military Veterans [VIDEO]

Rather than raising wages, stopping personal attacks on teachers and their families, and feeding hungry kids, or even putting more money into the school systems, instead let’s just removed all teaching standards by hiring any warm body preferably from the most conservative sectors we can find.   This follows the attacks on the education curriculums that are created by well trained highly educated people that have now been trashed in red states by maga republican office holders supported by the maga cult base.   Sickening.   The open destruction of public education and the institution of a Christian maga conservative lie taught to kids so they have no idea of the reality of the country, its history, or of their rights.   Remember what DeathSantis and most republicans think schools are, daycare for kids so the parents are free to go earn profit for the employers!   That was why DeathSantis insisted that schools stay open so the parents could go back to work, and the state could go back to normal.   So they state could get tax dollars and take in tourist revenue.   This has nothing about the full education and needs of students, the students are there to be warehoused and indoctrinated while their parents’ slave to make the profit of the business owners.    Hugs

Florida Politics reports:

Gov. Ron DeSantis is rolling out new proposals intended to bring teachers to Florida, with shortages affecting districts throughout the state. One such proposal may take first responders, including former police officers, firefighters and EMTs, from those high-pressure environments and move them to K-12 classrooms.

DeSantis said his proposed Governor’s Recruitment Program was “focusing on our heroes,” seeking to bring former first responders in in the way that former members of the military are now eligible for hire.

“We will waive the exam fees for the state teachers certification,” DeSantis vowed, floating a $4,000 bonus for all recruits and an additional $1,000 incentive for those teachers who are addressing “acute shortages” in the classroom.

Last week DeSantis declared that he was also seeking to hire enlisted military veterans because, he claims, they’d be better teachers than any of the highly-educated but “woke” teachers now heading for the hills in droves due to his fascist policies.

This is the “Get ‘Em While They’re Young” plank in the Florida GOP’s “Make Florida Even Dumber” party platform.

Next they’ll be recruiting prisoners nd giving them parole if they sign on to ‘teach’ for a year.

Destruction of education.
Destruction of any standards.
Disrespect for professional teachers and their qualifications.
Another example of US America’s anti-intellectual bias.
And Trump/Desantis are both products to the macho-culture which despises learning. education and real qualifications.
Shame on Desantis.
Shame on any one who takes a teaching job unqualified to do so.

Just wait a few years, and you can ask what the heck is wrong with all the people in Florida who were schoolkids in 2022.

He wants to make a jobs program for the damaged people who can’t cope with real life.

What could possibly go wrong?

You have no BA and no teaching certificate. No problem. We need a physics teacher. You’ve taken a physical in the military. You’re hired.

In other words, he has so badly managed the education system in Florida, that emergency measures are necessary just to keep bodies in the classrooms.
