DeSantis aided in the change of school boards. They are currently leaving their mark.

Gov. Ron DeSantis endorsed 30 candidates who he said would carry conservative values into local districts. Candidates ran on the mantle of parents rights, which typically translates to fewer accommodations for transgender students. Since Election Day, newly conservative school boards in two counties have moved to push out their superintendents. Sarasota County school board members moved quickly to fire superintendent without cause. Superintendent Brennan Asplen is now in negotiations over a separation agreement. In Brevard County, they moved to fire their superintendent, Mark Mullins, who has been with the district for 30 years.
