DeSantis Vows To Oust Pro-Science School Boards- JMG


Politico reports:

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis wants to continue wielding his political influence in school board races across the state after his campaign helped two dozen conservative candidates win during this year’s midterm elections.

The Republican governor this week said he intends to flip more local seats from liberal to conservative-leaning education officials, taking aim at boards in areas such as Broward and Hillsborough counties that have pushed back against Republican policies.

Speaking at a school board training event he hosted in Orlando on Monday, DeSantis criticized “obnoxious” board members who went against the state and some parents by passing mask mandates for students amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Why even bother with schools at all? Just shut them all down.

They clearly intend to. DeSantis will most def be the GQP POTUS candidate. He’s the only one who has made it clear that he wants to end the public school system.
