Dem Senator And Former Teacher Slams DeSantis’ Education Policies, Saying "Children Are More Smarter Than We Think They Are" 🤔
· Jan 23, 2022 ·

Florida Democratic Senator, Shevrin Jones criticized Governor Desantis for his position on the Parents' Bill of Rights in an episode of The ReidOut with Joy Reid, saying that "As a former teacher, I want to make it clear that these children are more smarter than we think they are."

Watch the interview here:

At 1:00:

"Let's be extremely clear about something. As a former teacher, I want to make it clear that these children are more smarter than we think they are."

Ah yes, extremely clear sir, thank you!

To be fair, he taught Science, not English. But the grammatical errors are pretty glaring when criticizing a policy that prioritizes teaching basic subjects like English, Math, and Science.

Reid argues in the interview that children wouldn't be able to talk about themselves in school if they are LGBT, which is a pretty wild claim since the bill doesn't prohibit students in any way, but addresses teachers and schools.

The actual text of the bill says,

A school district may not encourage classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity in primary grade levels or in a manner that is not age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students.

Does that sound like an outrageous limitation - to require age-appropriate discussion of sexual orientation and gender identity? Well for Shevrin, Reid, and the rest of the left it's a fundamental violation of human rights to consider what is age-appropriate for kids in elementary school.

Shevrin went on to say in the interview,

"Our children don't need us censoring anything,"

And with that, I'd wager that he doesn't have children because any parent can tell you that we censor things for our children NON-STOP for reasons that should be obvious.
