DeSantis signs bill targeting explicit books in schools
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Saying that Florida public schools are making sexually explicit books available to children, Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill Friday to give parents a say in which books schools can and cannot have in their libraries.
This will require all elementary schools to provide a searchable list of all books available in their libraries or used in instruction. School boards must notify the public when considering approving new textbooks and allow anyone to comment. Any objection to the material, by a parent or not, must be reported to the state.
