Florida’s largest teachers union is suing the state and GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis for ordering schools to hold in-person classes five days a week starting next month.
The Florida Education Association, which represents 140,000 education employees across the state, filed the lawsuit on Monday accusing DeSantis of violating a state constitutional mandate to keep schools “safe and secure,” according to National Review. The suit stems from a July 6 Education Department order directing schools to “ensure the quality and continuity of the educational process, the comprehensive wellbeing of students and families and a return to Florida hitting its full economic stride.”
