Report from Florida: Literacy Today

Fahrenheit 451 was an inspiration to unlikable whiney, nasal-voiced Gov. DeSanctimonious:

Hide your books to avoid felony charges, Fla. schools tell teachers

Students arrived in some Florida public school classrooms this month to find their teachers’ bookshelves wrapped in paper — or entirely barren of books — after district officials launched a review of the texts’ appropriateness under a new state law.

School officials in at least two counties, Manatee and Duval, have directed teachers this month to remove or wrap up their classroom libraries, according to records obtained by The Washington Post. The removals come in response to fresh guidance issued by the Florida Department of Education in mid-January, after the State Board of Education ruled that a law restricting the books a district may possess applies not only to schoolwide libraries but to teachers’ classroom collections, too.

I guess burning them is next?

Parents who worried about their kids falling behind during the pandemic shut-downs now need to worry about the deliberate education hurdles that their culture-war embracing governor is inflicting upon them, all in the service of his expected 2024 Goat Rodeo run.

Floriduh’s parents need to consider the future. VICE News uncovered an Ohio couple who started a neo-Nazi homeschooling collective called the “Dissident Homeschool” network, so there are options I guess. Personally, I would be on my way out and NOT to Texas.

    I read about the neo-Nazi home schooling network yesterday. I’m fairly certain that Mein Kampf will be a featured item. And I’m guessing here that goose stepping down the halls will become a standard feature…

    Also I discovered that black studies of any kind will not be allowed in Floriduh. Sort of the modernist version of separate but equal doctrine. It doesn’t work either. I’m just gonna drop this off now…

    These guys don’t consider Mein Kampf a book.

    They consider it a How-To manual.

    Wow. Such a step backward. But were they ever this blatant before? Maybe it’s just a step deeper. I cannot believe that in this century and with all the knowledge available to the common folk, anyone would ever allow such blatant fear-mongering. Books? Show me where the book hurt you on this doll.
    I cannot even imagine people being that ignorant in this day, but here he is and he has followers.

    Remember when Pol Pot killed everybody who wore glasses because it probably meant they could read? It’s coming, Florida.

    Just wait until those children try to get into reputable colleges. They are going to be shocked to learn that they are ignorant, sloped jawed, drooling newts to college boards and their futures are relegated to wiping wet cars with wax rags.
