As Florida’s parental rights law took effect on Friday, the White House denounced it as “discrimination” and a “disturbing and dangerous” tendency of Republican legislators “cynically targeting LGBTQI+” people to “get political points,” Fox News informed.
The statute that prohibits teachers from teaching about “sexual orientation” or “gender identity” in kindergarten through third grade was signed into law by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in March.
When the law went into effect on Friday, the press secretary of the White House Karine Jean-Pierre criticized it, stating that some of Florida’s “most vulnerable pupils and families are more afraid and less free.”
Jean-Pierre said that state politicians who claim to support liberty are restricting the freedom of their fellow Americans to just be themselves as the state’s disgusting ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law takes effect. She also said that teachers have been told not to dress in rainbow colors.
Teachers who identify as LGBTQI+ have been instructed to remove cherished family photographs of their husbands and spouses.
According to Jean Pierre that is not a question of ‘parents’ rights.
She declared that this is discrimination, pure and simple.
It’s a part of a troubling and very dangerous nationwide trend when right-wing politicians shamelessly target LGBTQI+ children, educators, and other people in order to gain political advantage.
It prohibits committed instructors and educators who want to be supportive in their pupils’ interests and do the right thing, she claimed.
And it has to end, she added.
According to Jean-Pierre Joe Biden has been quite explicit that every student needs to feel safe and accepted in the classroom.
Every student or parent who thinks they are a victim of discrimination is invited to register a complaint with the Department’s Office for Civil Rights, she said, adding that the Department of Education expects to monitor the legislation.
