Our Precious Children’sMental Health…

In the Annie E. Casey Foundationโ€™s annual report evaluating states on indicators of child well-being, Florida โ€” after modest improvements in rankings over time โ€” remains 35th in the nation…

Each year, the Foundation uses 16 publicly available indicators of child well-being organized into four domains: economic well-being, education, health, and family and community. All of these come from publicly available national data so the states can be directly compared. Trend data is also presented for each variable to show change over time.

Below, FPI looks at each domain as compared to 2008-20121…

These findings are extremely disturbing…Our children have been dealing with so much… pandemic, divisive politics and poor leadership…

We have a governor who has refused to expand Medicaid…and from my own personal experience…My daughter who has mental health issues has been denied assistance…

We in Florida must vote blue for our precious children…
Having taught 38 years in Florida…
We so need a fighter…with heart…. right now more than ever..

Florida must Vote for our Precious Children…

Florida is supposed to be the “Education State”…

Floridaโ€™s 9000+ teacher shortage is a policy decision, and itโ€™s the result of the hypocrisy and divisive Republican leadership in our state…

Florida Deserves Better!!!
All our precious children… Need schools with enough Teachers and Staff…and a curriculum that is unbiased, and developmentally appropriate…

We must vote Tuesday, August 23, for our precious children…Vote for a governor that truly cares…for “all” children…

#SomethingNew…

THIS is what #SomethingNew looks like. We are united, we are energized, and we are ready to win!!! LFG!!

“I, so love your energy!
You are just what our children need here in Florida…
A strong, caring governor that will bring Florida back to where we once were…

Mailing in my ballot Monday!!! “
And I voted early for …

Florida’s Law… “Don’t Say Gay”

Some school officials have been accused of warning teachers not to wear rainbow articles of clothing and to remove pictures of their same-sex spouses from their desks…

As Floridaโ€™s Parental Rights in Education law โ€” or what critics have dubbed the โ€œDonโ€™t Say Gayโ€ law โ€” goes into effect Friday, some of the stateโ€™s public school districts have begun rolling out new policies to limit LGBTQ issues and identities from being discussed in the classroom….

As Florida’s ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law takes effect, schools roll out LGBTQ restrictions June 30, 2022…
