TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Gov. Ron DeSantis’ re-election campaign launched a statewide blueprint allowing school board candidates and members to see if their education stances align with the Governor’s school agenda priorities. 

The initiative is called the “DeSantis Education Agenda: Putting Students First, Protecting Parents’ Rights,” which the campaign said will ensure parental rights in education and combat “woke” agendas. Leaders will take the DeSantis Education Agenda Survey at

“Parents across Florida should ask school board candidates and their current school board members how they scored on the DeSantis Education Agenda,” said Dave Abrams, DeSantis re-election campaign senior advisor.

The survey includes questions about teacher compensation, workforce development, masking in schools, school choice, increasing school safety measures, banning Critical Race Theory (CRT), and curriculum transparency with parents. 

“Florida’s students are thriving, our schools are open, teachers are paid more, and parents are empowered. This agenda serves as a model for the nation as Florida’s school board candidates run and win on the DeSantis Education Agenda,” Abrams said.

The Governor has taken a strong stance against Critical Race Theory in public schools. The Stop WOKE Act bans workplace training or schools from teaching that anyone is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously.

The Governor also signed the Parental Rights in Education Act to prevent K-3 grade students from learning about gender ideology in the classrooms. It also aims to provide parents with more transparency on their child’s educational experience.
