TAMPA. Florida (TodayNews) — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis lashed out at the Biden administration as Vice President Kamala Harris took the stage on her latest trip to Florida on Friday.
Harris’s speech dealt with changes in state education standards that critics say downplay slavery.
The Florida Board of Education voted Wednesday to approve a revised black history curriculum that meets legislation DeSantis says is needed to prevent liberal indoctrination.
The revised curriculum includes instructions on how some slaves could benefit from the skills they acquired. It also focuses on the accomplishments of African Americans rather than the injustice they faced due to slavery and segregation.
“Democrats like Kamala Harris should lie about Florida’s educational standards to cover up their plans to indoctrinate students and impose sexual themes on children,” DeSantis said in a statement released by the DeSantis campaign for president. “Florida is in their way, and we will continue to expose their plans and their lies.
“The Harris-Biden administration is obsessed with Florida… but ignores border chaos, crime towns, economic troubles and the conscription crisis.
“Maybe if Biden’s granddaughter moved to Florida, he would actually visit her,” he continued.
