ANALYSIS/OPINION: Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida signs the “Stop Woke Act.” This bill prohibits discrimination and it states that ALL history must be taught in schools. Teachers will not be permitted to distort history to serve their ideological goals. Civics, character, merit and mental health will now be taught.
Many leftists try to use the excuse that there are no courses actually named “Critical Race Theory” or “CRT” in our children’s curriculum, and that therefore it is not being taught. That is not the case.
As DeSantis points out, enumerating the principles of CRT and injecting them into our children’s education is not education. That is indoctrination. CRT is not only being taught to our children, but to our adult workforce as well under the guise of “workforce training.”
Big corporations like Apple and Google are teaching people that all Americans are raised to be racist!!
Walt Disney even incorporated a white privileged checklist into their training!! Under this new bill, things of this nature will be a total violation of our civil rights.
So, in contrast to CRT, this bill encourages teachers to inspire their students with stories of overcoming adversity no matter what your race or the color of your skin.
