Governor Ron DeSantis Highlights Florida’s Number One Ranking for Education Freedom

Press release from the Office of Governor Ron DeSantis

ORLANDO, Fla. — Today, Governor Ron DeSantis spoke at the unveiling of The Heritage Foundation’s 2022 Education Freedom Report Card where he highlighted Florida’s number one ranking. The report lauds Florida’s dedication to education transparency, regulatory freedom, and return on investment, praising our state’s rejection of critical race theory and championing of school choice and educational savings accounts.

“When other states were locking people down and keeping their kids out of school, we made sure kids were in school because we put their well-being before politics,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “While states like California, New York, and Illinois that denied in-person education to their children are now suffering from plummeting educational outcomes, Florida’s schoolchildren are thriving because we invest in our students and we empower parents to decide what learning environment is best for their kids. Thank you to The Heritage Foundation for recognizing our success and ranking Florida number one in the nation for education freedom.”

Throughout his time in office, Governor DeSantis has made education a top priority. By enshrining parents’ rights, expanding school choice, raising teacher pay, promoting civics education, bolstering workforce education, and holding higher education accountable, Florida is leading the way and is an educational model for the nation.

  • Many of our friends and family in other states wish they had Ron DeSantis as their Governor.
    Only the ultra liberal base in our city are so jaded to dislike him. Even the failing Gainesville Sun continues to berate him.

    • And Desantis ended the child abuse with the face masks that the teachers unions, school boards, & fascist commie liberal teachers mandated on the kids.
      Hindsight is 20/20…we never should have closed the schools and paid people not to work…they destroyed the dollar & our economy over the common cold…
      The Vax plan is part of global reset…global reset cannot happen without the Vax passport plan.

    • Yep, you are absolutely right in what you say. We live in the county, away from UF and the leftists that surround it and everyone we know loves Governor DeSantis.
