NAPLES, Florida, May 12, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The Florida Citizens Alliance calls on the government. Ron DeSantis and education commissioner Richard corcoran end the adoption of English language arts textbooks to ensure that they do not contain critical race theory.
In addition, the organization wants the state to ban any school district Florida to accept federal grants related to Critical Race Theory and similar topics.
“The governor has executive power as Florida Governor and with the 10th amendment to say no, “said Keith flaugh, Founder and CEO of Florida Citizens Alliance (FLCA). “Otherwise, critical breed theory will be a huge embarrassment for Florida; and it will be infused in our classrooms for the next 4-6 years. “
The FLCA, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit that advocates for K-12 education reform in Florida, believes that integrating critical race theory into the school curriculum teaches children to be ashamed of their race.
Critical race theorists fight over institutions United States are inherently racist in that they function to create and maintain social, economic and political inequalities between whites and non-whites, particularly African Americans.
The FLCA recently published an open letter on the subject and garnered support from about 50 other organizations across the state. Some organizations that joined in signing the letter include: Defend Florida, We The People IRC, American Christian Civil Rights Movement, Pinellas Patriots, Moms for America, Women Fighting for America, Gulf Coast Classical Academy, Save Florida Schools and several 912 groups across the state. .
The public is invited to join the petition on GOFLCA.com. He specifically asks Governor DeSantis and Education Commissioner Corcoran to:
1. Stop adoption of ELA textbooks until the FL DOE can be 100% sure that all textbooks and teacher editions are completely free from critical race theory and its many tentacles.
2. Strictly ban any school district Florida to accept a direct federal grant related to critical race theory or its many tentacles.
“Right now, all 67 Florida school districts are adopting and purchasing English-to-English (ELA) textbooks,” Flaugh said. “Many of these documents are published by the same progressive editors who gave us and the rest of the nation Common Core.”
