White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre accused Florida of censoring education as a form of cancel culture, calling Republicans hypocrites.
"Under threat of having their licenses revoked, gay teachers have been forced to take down pictures of their spouses from their desks and censor their classroom materials," Jean-Pierre said. "Censoring our classes is not how public education is supposed to work in a free country."
Earlier this week, DeSantis secured a win by approving a ban on classroom instruction about sexual orientation and gender identity in all grades. Previously, the ban was kindergarten through third grade.
