Florida School Board Shutdown LGBTQ Month Recognition

Florida secured a significant win as the Miami-Dade County Public Schools Board voted down an attempt to recognize October as LGBTQ history month.

Being one of Florida’s biggest public education systems, the 8-1 vote against the radical measure shows not all hope is lost in regaining sanity in all public schools.

Last year the school hailed October as LGBTQ history month, so the reversal decision is momentous.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis unveiled the Parental Rights in Education law, which Republicans are celebrating, while Democrats are fighting back against losing sole control of public education. One of the board members said the law helped cement the board’s decision.

“It was clear here today that we were going to follow the law, and the Parental Rights bill is very clear that this type of imposition should not be imposed on our children, especially in our elementary schools, and an endorsement district-wide was in direct violation of the Parental Rights bill,” board member Christi Fraga said after the vote.

Thanks to DeSantis’ parental right bill, teachers can no longer discuss sexual orientation or gender identity in third grade or lower grades. Liberals have pushed back fiercely, falsely labeling the law as a “don’t say gay” bill.

Lucia Baez-Geller, who sponsored the measure, was the sole member to vote to keep the system-wide LGBTQ History Month act in place.

If Baez-Geller got her way, the measure would have also forced a new progressive curriculum on high schoolers.

Protestors on both sides expressed their thoughts on the measure and the onslaught of LGBTQ curriculum seeping into public schools.

Pastor Max Tover, a parent in the school district, supported banishing the measure, calling it a “trojan horse” used to indoctrinate children on homosexuality.

As students increasingly miss educational marks, DeSantis has called on public educators to focus on reading, writing and arithmetic rather than sexualized ideologies and critical race theory.

Now that October has been reclaimed for one of Florida’s biggest counties, hopefully, teachers can spend more time encouraging students to learn basic educational principles and concentrate less on indoctrination topics.
