+Grim Reaper 6 Posted February 1 #1 Share Posted February 1 The Washington Post issued a clarification on its Tuesday report on Gov. Ron DeSantis’, R-Fla., education bill, implying that teachers can face felony charges for displaying unapproved titles at school libraries under the new law. The article titled, "Hide your books to avoid felony charges, Fla. schools tell teachers," originally highlighted concerns from teachers about the impact of DeSantis’ K-12 education bill that requires transparency regarding reading materials available to students. For materials that violate the law’s definition of "adequate instructional materials," reporter Hannah Natanson warned that the penalty could rise to the level of a felony. The following was later added to the story, "The new law comes atop an older one that makes distributing ‘harmful materials’ to minors, including obscene and pornographic materials, a third-degree felony — meaning that a teacher could face up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine for displaying or giving students a disallowed book, a spokeswoman from the Florida Department of Education said Tuesday." https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/wapo-fearmongers-about-felony-charges-for-teachers-under-desantis-rules-later-clarifies-report/ar-AA16YfJ5?cvid=34cd21e441ed4e14afa58311ca8d8574 1 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
