Please propose legislation that will require any school receiving public funds (either directly or indirectly) to follow Florida Statute 1003.42.
Excerpt from f.s. 1003.42 (g):
[a required course that will teach] …… the ramifications of prejudice, racism, and stereotyping, and an examination of what it means to be a responsible and respectful person, for the purposes of encouraging tolerance of diversity in a pluralistic society and for nurturing and protecting democratic values and institutions.
If legislators are going to continue giving our tax money to charters and private schools, then each law that spells out rules for the neighborhood school needs to explicitly say if the charter school and private school receiving voucher money has to follow that law also.
Governor DeSantis said any school receiving public funds is a public school. What does he mean? Does he mean that any school receiving public funds should be required to follow the same rules as the neighborhood school?
