TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Legislation requiring Florida high school students to learn about the destructive effects of communism around the world reached Gov. Ron DeSantis’ desk.
H.B. 395 proclaims November 7th as “Victims of Communism Day.”
Under the legislation, students would be required to observe “Victims of Communism Day” in school. The day will honor the 100 million people who have fallen victim to communist regimes across the world.
High school students enrolled in the United States Government Class would be required to receive at least 45 minutes of instruction on “Victims of Communism Day” beginning in the 2023-2024 school year.
Students will learn how these victims faced poverty and suffered from starvation, migration, systemic lethal violence, and suppression of speech.
They will learn topics including Mao Zedong and the Cultural Revolution, Joseph Stalin and the Soviet System, Fidel Castro and the Cuban Revolution, Vladimir Lenin and the Russian Revolution, Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge, and Nicolas Maduro and the Chavismo movement.
