Desantis Protect Parental Rights in Education

Leave the sexual orientation of people outside of the classroom in K through third grade! What kind of perverts think it is ok to talk to 1st graders about their sexuality. Let them be kids!

You guys on the left are really gonna be in for a rude awakening and it is all because of stupid stuff like this.

Hey you know how conservatives go on and on about the woke mob or big tech is putting their thumb on people for saying certain things like they are some sort of defacto Gestapo?

Now… lets do that… but give random ■■■■■■■■■ the ability to sue teachers and schools if they think that something might… just might have been outside of the lines.

I also don’t think that this is super effective slam that DeSantis thinks that it is.

The fact that he doesn’t see it shows that he is either not that smart or being intentionally dumb.

So if some students have two dads or two moms, or whatever, and a kid asks a teacher a question or wants to talk about his parents—bring on the potential lawsuits?

DeSantis creates an imaginary problem to rile up the base; then, he “solves” the “problem.”

Teachers shouldnt be outside the lines! Stick with the approved lesson plans. Parents should have the right to see what is being taught in class and teachers should be fired if they are not going by the approved lesson plan.

I fully support putting cameras in all classrooms. The teachers are public servants just like police officers. If a teacher is teaching from the lesson plan, there shouldnt be any issue. Further, If a kid gets lost trying to do his homework, he could pull up the days video and get a refresher.

Few things are more disgusting than people who would have this trash forced on other people’s children.

I also fully support your ability to condemn teachers not being able to teach sexuality to k through third grade. I think you may have a winning issue for the electorate. Run on that issue!

Somewhere along the way, taking standard conservative positions—regressive taxation, opposition to regulations, preference for private sector solutions, etc.— stopped being enough.

Now, you have at act like a total â– â– â– â– â– â– â– â–  too.

But it isn’t even about what is being “taught”

The law is so vague that simply acknowledging that gay people exist is enough.

The GOP has found a super impressive weapon to avoid scrutiny of their terrible laws. They divorce the enforcement mechanism from the State and put it on mercenaries to bring suits to the court.

It is quite brilliant.

Younkin should have taught you guys something. Those kids belong to their parents…not the state or you guys on the left. If it isnt in the lesson plan, dont address it. You are not their social workers.

You seem to be missing my point.

A vague law where any busybody can sue the teacher and the school if they feel that the vagueness of the law has been violated in anyway is a way to create chaos, fear and dismissal that gay people actually exist in this world.

This is not a law that is enforced by the State… but by mercenaries.

The fact that culture war has blinded people to the dangerousness of this is quite depressing.

Read the law. It does not prohibit teachers from discussing sexual activities or “sexuality.” Rather, it prohibits discussions of sexual orientation and gender identity.

So what part of “discussions of sexual orientation and gender identity” do you think are appropriate for teachers to teach to k-3 kids?

I personally dont think there should have to be a law on this. It is so basic that everyone should understand it. But evidently some teachers think those discussions are appropriate. Evidently, you do too. That is why this law was created. It isnt appropriate.

Question: suppose a child does ask about “two daddies” or whatever. Under this law, how should the teacher respond?

So if one student has two moms or dads, and refers to that in class, or another student asks a question about it, what does the teacher do? Can gay teachers refer to their partners or spouses in class?

Too easy…Sweetheart, that is a question for your parents. Right now we are discussing colors. What is your favorite color?

How should a teacher address a kid in 1st grade with two moms, who, on father’s day when the rest of the class is making cards, isn’t sure what to do?

How about a married male gay teacher…how do they respond when a student asks what their wife’s name is?

Easy. For one thing, it’s appropriate to acknowledge that gay people—parents, teachers, administrators, etc.—EXIST. They’re not taboo unpersons whose lives need to be shrouded in weird secrecy by litigious, sanctimonious busybodies.
