Billionaire Ken Griffin Moves Company HQ To Florida, Slams Chicago Schools: ‘Woke Ideology Was Crushing’

MIAMI (FLV) – Billionaire Ken Griffin, CEO of Hedge Fund Citadel, slammed Chicago schools after moving his company’s headquarters to Florida over the summer.

“My children went to a phenomenal school in Chicago … but their indoctrination in woke ideology was crushing,” Griffin said in a recent interview with the Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, as reported by the NY Post.

Although Florida has no state income tax, Griffin says that wasn’t the determining factor for the move, citing “great schools, a great environment and your streets are safe and clean.”

Griffin, who has been a supporter of Gov. Ron DeSantis for years, says living in Florida allows you to see the impact of his policies.

“It is a state that is prospering. Children in schools are being educated, not indoctrinated,” Griffin said.

Griffin said his children were confused if the United States was a good country.

“And they came home confused about what they could or couldn’t say to a student who was Asian or otherwise of color. My son was reprimanded for telling an Asian student he was good at math — for stereotyping,” Griffin said.

“And it’s unbelievable to see how that destroys the minds of children who are otherwise innocent and good and don’t think about these kinds of things.”

Griffin reportedly said seeing his kids transform in Florida schools “is perhaps the greatest gift Miami has given my family.”

Griffin is worth $32 billion dollars according to Forbes. He has three children.

Florida was recently ranked number one in the United States for attracting and developing a skilled workforce.

The DeSantis Administration said the report confirms that its policies to open the economy and focus on education solidified Florida as the best state to live in.

“As other states continue to struggle at the hands of poor leadership, people and businesses are flocking to Florida,” DeSantis previously said.
