Florida Legislature Signs Bill Restricting LGBTQ Discussion in Schools

Hands up

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed the Parental Rights in Education Bill which caused nationwide controversy in the US.

An unofficial name for the bill is “Don’t Say Gay”. Previously approved by the Senate, the act postulates that employees at schools and kindergartens must not talk about “sexual orientation” or “gender identity” with minor students as it “is deemed inappropriate by “state standards”.” 

The Florida Governor explained the core meaning of this bill as “parents’ rights have been increasingly under assault around the nation.”
