FLORIDA (FLV) – Gov. Ron DeSantis toured parts of Florida Sunday promoting school board candidates and his education agenda ahead of Florida’s primary election Tuesday.
The DeSantis Education Agenda Tour stopped in Miami-Dade, Sarasota, Volusia, and Duval Counties.
“Florida has led with purpose and conviction that our school system is about education, not indoctrination. Our education agenda is focused on protecting parental rights, curriculum transparency, and keeping classrooms free of woke ideology,” DeSantis said.
“Across our state, Floridians are ready for local school boards who promote education, not indoctrination. It was great to be in these counties to share our bold agenda for education ahead of the important election on August 23.”
DeSantis made the uncommon move to endorse school board candidates across the state in the non-partisan race. The DeSantis campaign said the governor is the first to put forth a slate of school board candidates.
The governor-endorsed school board candidates have pledged to run on the DeSantis Education Agenda: Putting Students First, Protecting Parents’ Rights. This is a statewide blueprint for school board candidates and members who want to advance Governor DeSantis’s agenda at the local school board level.
