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.”
