Florida’s Gov-Elect Appoints Climate Deniers And Creationists To Education Board – The Intellectualist

Stephen Sawchuk of Education Week explains the concerns:

One of them, Keith Flaugh, is the managing director of the Florida Citizens Alliance, a local advocacy organization which supports “individual rights.” In Collier County,Flaugh submitted dozens of objections to science textbooks*, alongside three other residents also affiliated with the FCA.*

***“Man-made global warming [is] presented as fact when it is still very much a theory!” he wrote**in one of the challenges. In another: **“Books that treat evolution as a proven science are discriminating and bully children and families against their religious beliefs.”*

Accompanying Flaugh on DeSantis’ transition team isErika Donalds, the wife of the lawmaker who sponsored the curriculum-challenge law*. Donalds also previously served on the Collier County school board, where **she voted in favor of removing the materials Flaugh and others challenged in that county**.*
