Why Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Bill Hurts Student Learning

From the #ZackPack Why Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Bill Hurts Student Learning By Danie Cooper, Lead Writer (Three Plus One Media)   Florida’s "Don't Say Gay" Bill is a bill that will lead to the banning of LGBTQ+ discussion in Florida’s schools. Though Florida Gov. Ron Desantis claims this will only affect grades three and below, the ambiguous wording of the bill is purposeful in its use of “age-appropriate”.

I love this graphic! The @staceyabrams agenda is indeed out of this world and will radically improve Georgia.
