“As a parent, you have the right to know the curriculum that’s being used in your kids’ school, and it’s kind of a complement to the Parents Rights in Education. Also with the library books. They’ll have these library books in like middle schools that, you know, that’ll have things like pedophilia and really grotesque and obscene things, and that’s just not appropriate,” DeSantis said.
The governor also addressed the needed focus of young children in schools on core areas of education.
The audience showed its approval by giving DeSantis’s remarks a stirring round of applause.
