TAMPA- Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis spoke at the opening of the inaugural ‘Moms For Liberty’ summit, which aims to steer the direction of local school boards around the state.
Attendees cheered DeSantis when he recounted his decision to reopen Florida schools for in-person learning as the COVID pandemic unfolded.
He urged people in the audience to “stand up and fight” for transparency from their local school boards and touted his own efforts at education reform, citing the ‘Parental Rights in Education” law, which forbids lessons on sex and gender in grades K-3.
The summit concludes on Sunday.
