Ron DeSantis Makes More Endorsements in Local School Board Races

This week, Gov. Ron DeSantis threw his support behind three local school board candidates.

This follows DeSantis’ endorsement of his first and second rounds of endorsements earlier this year. The governor’s full slate of endorsements includes 29 school board candidates.

“These candidates have pledged to run on the ‘DeSantis Education Agenda: Putting Students First, Protecting Parents’ Rights,’ a statewide blueprint for school board candidates and members who are committed to advancing Governor DeSantis’s agenda at the local school board level. Governor DeSantis endorsed these candidates because he is committed to student success, parental rights, and curriculum transparency, which all start at the school board level,” the governor’s political team announced.

DeSantis announced the latest endorsements on Wednesday.

“I’m proud to release my full slate of pro-parent, student-first school board candidate endorsements. Our school board members are on the frontlines of defending our students and standing up for parental rights. These 29 candidates are committed to advancing a bold education agenda in Florida. Parents can rest easy knowing that these candidates will fully support their right as parents to ensure their children reach their full potential in Florida’s K-12 education system,” DeSantis said.
