FORT MYERS, FL – A letter from the U.S. Education Secretary Miguel Cardona states that the Biden Administration will give funding to Florida school districts who defy Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ (R) recent executive order prohibiting public schools from mandating students wear masks.

Cardona remarked, “Florida’s recent actions to block school districts from voluntarily adopting science-based strategies for preventing the spread of COVID-19 that are aligned with the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) puts students and staff at risk.”

He went on, saying, “If FLDOE [the Florida Department of Education] does not wish to pursue such an approach, the Department will continue to work directly with the school districts and educators that serve Florida’s students.”

The CDC guidance states that regardless of vaccination status, everyone should wear a mask while indoors. 

DeSantis’ recent executive order enforces existing Florida law that gives parents considerable freedom in how their child is raised and educated.

Democrats and the Biden Administration have consistently supported lockdowns, mask mandates, and vaccine mandates in relation to COVID-19, while Republicans have consistently believed in basic liberty and freedom. 

The power struggle with COVID-19 restrictions between the federal government and state governments like Florida is not new, with DeSantis crafting statewide rules prohibiting cruise liners from requiring vaccines, while the federal government is attempting to require vaccines on cruise liners. 

Cardona also intends on giving funds to school districts in Texas that disobey the state’s anti-mask mandate order.
