The latest oxymoronic school speech from Florida Governor DeSantis

Frida Ghitis: Gov. Ron DeSantisantisantis offered a new definition of public education. “Education freedom” is a favorite catchphrase of those who view the U.S. public education system as a monopoly. They support a privatized system that is publicly funded even if the public has no control over it. DeSantis has been waging the most aggressive war against public education of any governor. He signed what critics dubbed the “don’t say gay” bill, which limits teachers from discussing sexual orientation or gender identity. His administration rejected publisher-submitted math textbooks for including passages his administration doesn’t like.
