SB 656

This bill is very dangerous.  It has led in Florida to increased teenage deaths caused by a destruction of safe space in schools.  It has led to teachers being attacked for books that a few weeks/months ago were considered fine and outstanding.  It has led to more racism between students.  It has also led to teachers being harassed for innocuous words.  It has  had many unexpected consequences, almost universally negative.    You should be supporting schools and teachers not trying to destroy them.
