Florida House approves CRT, ‘don’t say gay’ bills

The Republican-sponsored measures will head to the Senate for consideration.

Opponents of the bill said teachers already teach the material in a fair and impartial manner. They suggested proponents offered no Florida examples of such attempts to indoctrinate children.

“This bill is sending a clear message that we don’t trust our teachers,” said Rep. Travaris McCurdy, D-Orlando.

Rep. Fentrice Driskell, D-Tampa, added that she was tired of hearing from others about the bill’s impact.

“This bill didn’t manifest out of thin air,” Driskell said. “It’s in the context of a concerted effort to suppress stories of communities of color and to not teach our history, which is also everyone’s history, in a truthful and accurate way.”
