#BREAKING: As expected, following a vote by the Florida Board of Education, critical-race theory has been banned in public schools, an effort Gov. Ron DeSantis has been pushing for weeks.
Under the new rule, teachers will be prohibited from discussing critical-race theory or the 1619 Project, despite Board Members admitting they have not read any of the 1619 work.
For a comprehensive summary of the Board meeting and vote, read this extensive thread from @emdrums, education reporter for Florida Times-Union.
