I have never EVER subscribed to or believed in any conspiracy theory in my life. That being said, what I'm about to say, I know, but please hear me out. The new Florida law, HB7, which forbids CRT from being taught in math classes from K-12 here in Florida has resulted in only
ONE publisher of textbooks in the country, Houston-based Accelerated Learning to be eligible to supply books to the State of Florida, out of ALL of the publishers of textbooks in the country! When I first heard this last night, my first thought was who is this company and how is
it that they are the only ones? Well, this morning on the front page of the Palm Beach Post it all seemed to fall into place. The company, Accelerated Learning, is a Houston-based text book publishing company. My thoughts immediately went to what is their connection to
Ron DeSantis and the Republican Party? It turns out that up until 2020, the CEO of The Carlyle Group, the global investment group that acquired Accelerated in 2018, was none other than the newly-elected government of Virginia, Glenn Youngkin. He had been with Carlyle for 25 years
Since taking office, Youngkin has pushed legislation that mimics Florida's almost to the letter. Meaning, the company that he was affiliated with until running for government, would benefit from legislation he's pushing through. How many other Republican states are going to do
the same thing, only get their textbooks from this one company? Here's hoping that some industrious report does a really deep dive into the connection between DeSantis and this company to see how much they have contributed to his re-election campaign and to Youngkin's campaign.
Like I said, I have never subscribed to conspiracy theories and I know this sounds like one, but I truly believe this warrants an investigation.
@ValerioCNN Mike, if you get a chance can you read this whole thread of five tweets? Do you think anyone at CNN might be interested in following the money? TIA
