As Governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis is creating a model for other red states Governors to follow.
He has won fans by aggressively taking the fight to the radical Left with both his policies and his words.
And one sentence from America’s Governor has woke teachers refreshing their resumes.
DeSantis protecting Florida students
The last time Republican Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida took on Big Education in his state, left-wing politicians, the corporate-controlled media, Hollywood, and even giant mega-corporations all ganged up on him.
The Republican-controlled Legislature in the Sunshine State passed the Parental Rights in Education Act and Governor DeSantis eagerly signed it into law.
The bill barred any teaching of sexually mature subjects to students in kindergarten through third grade.
It also had protections for parents, forcing schools to alert them in cases such as pregnancy or gender identity changes.
However, leftists politicians and Fake News Media labeled the it the “Don’t Say Gay” bill.
Woke radicals flocked to social media, posting videos of themselves repeatedly saying the word, “gay,” as though it would change DeSantis’ mind.
This was all despite the fact, “don’t say gay,” was no where to be found in the wording of the legislation.
Disney vowed to fight the Governor over the new law – but that didn’t work out well for them.
Not only did they face boycotts from conservative customers – costing them untold millions of dollars – Governor DeSantis moved for the legislature to take away Disney’s self-governing status in the state.
DeSantis’ new teacher recruitment initiative
But America’s Governor isn’t done improving the state of education in the Sunshine State.
DeSantis has launched a new teacher recruitment initiative.
The Governor wants to recruit veterans and first responders to teach, saying both “have a wealth of knowledge and experience they can bring to bear in the classroom.”
He also wants to create a mentorship program allowing people with an associate’s degree to teach under the guidance of an experienced teacher.
DeSantis may have just found his re-election slogan
To the surprise of no one, Democrats and the teachers unions have come out against the plan.
But that hasn’t fazed DeSantis in the past and doesn’t appear to be now either.
In fact, he put down their objections with a single line.

“The State of Florida is the place where woke goes to die,” DeSantis said. “We’re not going to let this state descend into some type of woke dumpster fire.”
The epic takedown of woke teachers is going viral and has some of the most radical educators in the state rethinking their career path – or at least, the state they live in.
DeSantis is serious about bringing in the highest quality teachers for Florida students.
In his time as Governor, he’s spearheaded the largest salary increases for teachers in the State’s history.
Not to reward woke instructors who spend more class time observing everyone’s preferred pronouns than going over lesson plans – but to attract the best and brightest minds to teach the next generation of Floridians.
