(UnitedVoice.com) – Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) has made education a top priority in his state. He has worked side-by-side with lawmakers and the Department of Education to put policies in place to benefit students and their parents. The governor recently signed another bill to help Florida’s kids.
On Friday, March 25, DeSantis signed HB 1467 into law. The legislation imposes 4-year terms on school board members and they will not be allowed to serve for more than 12 consecutive years. The governor said he’s a “big believer in term limits.” He told reporters he plans to get involved in the school board races in counties across the state.
The new law also creates a new process for reviewing books in schools. DeSantis said he thinks it will give parents a “lot of confidence” that when they send their kids to school, they’ll be receiving an education and not “going to be indoctrinated.”

On Monday, DeSantis signed another bill into law targeting schools. The Parental Rights in Education bill prevents any discussion of gender identity or sexual orientation in classrooms from kindergarten through third grade. This is the bill that leftist opponents have incorrectly dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill.
