Florida’s Schools Need Help… Critical for our Children….

Our Governor, Ron DeSantis characterizes Florida as the “Education State”…

This is so far from reality…

Children are affected by the new variant and he refuses mask and vaccine mandates…

FEA’s Safe Schools Report: 2021-22



Covid cases are rising daily. Years of neglect have left schools with crumbling infrastructure and without working air conditioning. Our schools’ teacher and staff shortage was already far too high. Now rising illnesses and quarantines are pushing some districts to a breaking point. Bus driver shortages are creating havoc statewide.

How has Gov. DeSantis responded to these crises? He has already withheld billions of dollars intended to help schools and communities recover from the ongoing public health emergency. On top of that he is now threatening to take away funding from school districts who follow the medical advice given to them by doctors in their communities.

As educators, we know a bully when we see one and we know the only way to end bullying is to join together to call out the bad behavior…

Take a stand today by emailing Gov. DeSantis to tell him to stop threatening locally elected school board members for following their duty to keep students safe…

Florida… The Education State…

Amen…💕🌈🙏🏼🍎

Through all the challenges facing our children…I keep holding onto hope, and pray for that better day… Opportunities come and go… We have a president that cares…and is providing opportunities…funding and resources…And trying to keep children safe during this pandemic…

Then, we here in Florida are dealing with a governor that does not care…And then he does something quite unexpectedly and why…

@GovRonDeSantis…
How I have held onto hope.. For some reason you will be eliminating our rigid testing system, and developmentally inappropriate curriculum…Is this true???

So many questions…

What will this mean for the success of our children?
You describe Florida, “The Education State…”

However….Putting children first in safe schools will be Florida’s direction…

Means…Provided them with the 7 billion dollars you are withholding…from the Biden administration…And allowing vaccination and mask mandates in our schools…

If your real intent to give our children opportunities…We definitely would be…

Florida…The Education State

Florida is the “Education State.” Today I announced our plan to make Florida the first state to fully transition to progress monitoring. No more FSA testing. No more Common Core. https://twitter.com/GovRonDeSantis/status/1437832550253277184?s=20
