  • Florida’s board of education is considering an expansion to a Parental Rights law critics call “Don’t Say Gay.”
  • It would limit instructions about gender identity and sexual orientation for up to 12th grade.
  • It comes as DeSantis is widely expected to run for president as soon as May.

Florida’s board of education is considering restricting instruction about gender identity and sexual orientation for up to grade 12, effectively expanding a controversial education law that Democrats and LGBTQ rights groups have derided as “Don’t Say Gay.”

Under the proposal, which was endorsed on Wednesday by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’  press secretary, teachers could not instruct about sexual orientation or gender identity through twelfth grade, unless it’s required by state academic standards or is part of sex education or health classes. The rule would still give parents the option of taking their children out of sex ed. source
