Biden administration In discussion over Florida Parental Rights in Education bill

 Biden administration officials this week met virtually with students and families in Florida over the state’s Parental Rights in Education bill – known to its critics as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill – that was recently passed by the state legislature.

At a “listening and learning” roundtable on Thursday, Education Secretary Miguel Cardona and Department of Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary Rachel Levine heard from children and families in Florida about the impact the legislation, which seeks to prevent primary school educators from engaging in classroom instruction related to sexual orientation and gender identity, will have on their communities.
