The Florida Education Association has filed a lawsuit over the state’s order to reopen schools by fall.
The lawsuit is against Gov. Ron DeSantis, Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran, the Florida Department of Education, the Florida State Board of Education and Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez.
In a statement, FEA President Fedrick Ingram said “Gov. DeSantis needs a reality check, and we are attempting to provide one,”…“The governor needs to accept the reality of the situation here in Florida, where the virus is surging out of control. He needs to accept the evolving science.”
“FEA said the lawsuit intends to stop the reckless and unsafe reopening of public school campuses as coronavirus infections surge statewide.
