DeSantis Nukes DEI in Florida Schools

Ron DeSantis has chalked up another policy victory in Florida. The state’s Board of Education, which was appointed by the governor, formally moved to ban DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) in all state schools.

The new rule was the follow-through on a law DeSantis signed last May which mandated that funding be denied to any state school that has DEI programs.

“The rule adopted by the Board defined, for the first time, DEI and affirmatively prohibits FCS institutions from using state or federal funds to administer programs that categorize individuals based on race or sex for the purpose of differential or preferential treatment,” the Board wrote in a press statement.

“The Board’s decision will ensure that taxpayer funds can no longer be used to promote DEI on Florida’s 28 state college campuses.”

Florida continues to be on the cutting edge of the anti-DEI movement, something that will hopefully lead to other states following suit.

These universities are not going to make these changes without being forced to, and you can bet there will be some kicking and screaming along the way.

The state board also went further, completely replacing a “Principles and Sociology” course that had been used to push Critical Race Theory.

It will now be replaced with a course on American history.

Whatever one may think about the presidential primary, there is no doubt that DeSantis has completely transformed Florida into one of the most conservative states in the union.

He’s done that despite it being a naturally purple state that leans far more urban than most red states. He’s taken a very fickle electorate in a state that used to be very fickle and shifted it decidedly rightward.

    DeSantis wrote the book on nuking DEI (reverse racism), this process should be documented and employed in every state.

    Then when RINOs like Kemp push back on it then they can be primaried and voted out.

      DID DESANTIS REALLY PROVEABLY “NUKE” DEI FROM FLORIDA SCHOOLS???
      MANY PUBLIC SCHOOLS ARE DOING IT ANYWAY IA SNEAKY UNDERHANDED WAYS.
      THEY SAY THEY AREN’T, BUT THEY ARE. DEMS ALL.

      Hell no, Ron would love to see Trump in jail for Jan 6. He made it clear he believes Trump committed an insurrection.

  • Willie Lee says:

    And this is why he should be VP. He will, at Trump’s command, eviscerate the swamp as efficiently as possible.

    • LetsGoBrandon says:

      No, we need Trump in 2024 and Desantis from 2028 till 2032.

      • GALE60 says:

        NEVER DESANTIS.
        HE HAD HIS CHANCE AND BOMBED BIG TIME!!!

        AFTER TRUMP HELPED PROP DESANTIS UP SO HE COULD WIN HIS FIRST TERM AS FLORIDA GOVERNOR, DESANTIS SAID HE’D NOT RUN AGAINST TRUMP IF HE RAN FOR PRESIDENT. BUT DESANTIS DID NOT KEEP HIS WORD.

        AT THE FIRST SIGN OF SWEET TALK AND TONS OF NEVER TRUMP DONORS” BIG MONEY, THEY OWNED DESATIS.

    • GALE60 says:

      THE TRUTH IS THAT DESANTIS IS NOT LOYAL. PERIOD. UNTRUSTWORTHY!

      DESANTIS WOULD NOT HAVE EVEN BEEN A FIRST TERM GOVERNOR OF FLORIDA IF NOT FOR TRUMP ENDORSING HIM, PHYSICALLY BEING THERE FOR HIM, HAVING RALLIES IN FLORIDA FOR HIM. DESANTIS WAS LOSING UNTIL TRUMP BOOSTED HIM. TRUMP’S REWARD WAS DESANTIS RUNNING AGAINST HIM AFTER DESANTIS SAID HE WOULD NOT.

      ONCE DESANTIS GOT SOME SWEET TALK AND LOTS OF DONOR BUCKS THROWN AT HIM, HE WAS THEIRS. HE RAN. HE BOMBED. NEVER CAN BE TRUSTED EVER.

  • LetsGoBrandon says:

    This doesn’t address the root problem which is the teachers unions. He needs to find a way to ban them from Floridas public school system.
