Gov. Ron DeSantis promotes new Florida civics education program offering teachers $3,000 bonuses – https://www.heraldtribune.com/story/news/politics/state/2021/07/13/new-civics-program-florida-includes-teacher-bonuses-governor-ron-desantis/7950884002/
"Civics education in Florida schools continued Tuesday on a bumpy course under Gov. Ron DeSantis, who touted a new, $3,000 bonus program for teachers after vetoing civics literacy legislation just last month.
DeSantis struck down the civics literacy measure only weeks after the state’s Board of Education complied with his demand and banned the teaching of so-called critical race theory in Florida’s K-12 schools.
