On Monday, Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis signed Florida’s “Parental Rights in Education” bill into law, despite Democrats and their media supporters attacking him for backing the measure.

In kindergarten through third grade, the bill prevents teachers from teaching about “sexual orientation” or “gender identity” in the classroom. Despite being denounced as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill in the media, the legislation simply protects children from unnecessary sex education at young ages.

We ‘Insist’ Parents Have Rights

At a news conference at the Classical Preparatory School in Spring Hill, Florida, DeSantis remarked, “We not only realize that parents have a right to be involved, we insist that parents have a right to be involved.”

DeSantis signed a law last week that would restrict school board members to four years on the job and make much of the content in local schools public.

DeSantis continues to protect children, families, and parental rights across his state.
