The Florida Board of Education voted during their June meeting on Thursday to approve a rule proposed by Governor Ron DeSantis that will ban teaching certain controversial ideas about race and history, including “critical race theory.”
During the meeting that lasted over four hours, a large number of people spoke up, either in defense of critical race theory or in opposition to the radical curriculum.
A video of one parent’s speech was posted to social media by Moms for Liberty. Keisha King, a member of Moms for Liberty, said she has two children, one in private school and one who is in the public school system.
“It is sad that we are even contemplating something like critical race theory, where children will be separate by their skin color and deemed permanently oppressors or oppressed in 2021,” King warned.
“CRT is not racial sensitivity or simply teaching unfavorable American history, or teaching Jim Crow history. CRT is deeper and more dangerous than that,” she added.
“If this continues, we will look back and be responsible for the dismantling of the greatest country in the world by reverting to teaching hate and that race is a determining factor on where your destiny lies,” King warned.
