Florida Governor Ron DeSantis held the DeSantis Education Agenda Tour on Sunday with stops in Miami-Dade, Sarasota, Volusia, and Duval counties for his pro-parent, student-first education agenda for Florida.
DeSantis last month announced his full slate of 30 endorsements of local school board candidates who support the DeSantis Education Agenda and appeared with several of these candidates at today’s events.
“Florida has led with purpose and conviction that our school system is about education, not indoctrination. Our education agenda is focused on protecting parental rights, curriculum transparency, and keeping classrooms free of woke ideology,” said DeSantis. “Across our state, Floridians are ready for local school boards who promote education, not indoctrination. It was great to be in these counties to share our bold agenda for education ahead of the important election on August 23.”
DeSantis-endorsed school board candidates have pledged to run on the DeSantis Education Agenda: Putting Students First, Protecting Parents’ Rights, a statewide blueprint for school board candidates and members who are committed to advancing Governor DeSantis’s agenda at the local school board level.
“Governor DeSantis endorsed these candidates because he is committed to student success, parental rights, and curriculum transparency, which all start at the school board level,” said the DeSantis campaign.
“The Governor’s endorsements represent the largest and most significant effort by a governor to focus on school board candidates in Florida history. Further, no other governor in the nation is known to have put forward a full slate of school board candidate endorsements and promote a statewide blueprint like the DeSantis Education Agenda,” added the campaign.
