Governor Ron DeSantis is going after leftist politics in government schools.
This week is School Choice Week, and teachers unions will not like what he has to say.
In addition to announcing legislation to give teachers a raise, the governor proposed to protect their paychecks from automatic union dues deductions.
“This is a huge package to increase teacher pay, support teacher empowerment and protect teachers’ paychecks by ensuring they have control over their hard-earned salary,” Gov. DeSantis said in a statement. “We want more transparency into how school unions operate, and we are going to fight against school union haggling that holds teachers and their salary increases hostage. Partisan groups should not be given special privileges.”
In the clip below, Gov. DeSantis sent a loud and clear message to leftist teachers unions.
“We also believe that you should not have the school be a focus of school union politics and politicking and handing out literature…You do that on your own time, not on the public’s time.”
