Well folks, the great state of Florida has done it again! Governor Ron DeSantis just signed some new legislation that’s sure to ruffle a few feathers – he’s banned all state funding for diversity, equity, and inclusion programs in universities. That’s right, it’s time to put an end to all that “woke” nonsense and get back to basics.
SB 266, the legislation in question, not only prohibits universities from using state funding for DEI programs, but it also gives university presidents more control over hiring practices. Finally, someone is taking a stand against these left-wing radicals who think they can just hire whoever they want.
But this is just the latest in a national movement for education reform, and Governor DeSantis is leading the charge. After all, who needs transparency and critical thinking skills when you can just ban everything that makes you uncomfortable?
And don’t worry, he’s not just doing this for Florida – he’s using New College of Florida as a template for all public universities in the state. He wants to turn it into Florida’s classical college, modeled after Michigan’s Hillsdale College. Because who needs progress when you can just look to the past for all the answers?
Governor DeSantis is even attracting faculty from across the country with his efforts to de-emphasize DEI and critical race theory at New College. And not just conservative faculty, mind you – even those radical lefties are starting to see the light. They’re tired of walking on eggshells and not being able to speak their minds on university campuses. Because apparently, freedom of speech only applies to those who agree with us.
And let’s not forget the other bill he signed – the one that bans public universities from requiring students and faculty to provide diversity statements. Because who needs diversity anyway? We should all just stick to our own kind and never learn anything from anyone who’s different from us.
So let’s give a round of applause for Governor DeSantis, who’s bravely standing up against all the “woke” influences in education. Because who needs progress, diversity, and inclusion when we can just stick to the good old days?
