DeSantis Announces ‘Stop WOKE Act’ Against CRT in Schools, Workplace
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) announced the “Stop W.O.K.E. Act” Wednesday “taking a stand against critical race theory in our schools and in the workplace.”
Alongside Lt. Gov. Jeanette Núñez and Commissioner of Education Richard Corcoran, he introduced the new piece of legislation: “Stop Wrongs Against Our Kids and Employees Act.”
“I view the wokeness as a form of cultural Marxism,” DeSantis said. “They really want to tear at the fabric of our society and our culture.”
The bill would allow parents the right to sue if they think their kids are being taught CRT.
“Our legislation will defend any money for K-12 going to CRT consultants,” DeSantis said. “No taxpayer dollars should be used to teach our kids to hate our country or hate each other.”
The conservative governor referenced the Left’s attempts to erase U.S. history and topple statues of Founding Fathers and other figures.
