Florida withholds school board funding for two counties who imposed mask mandates
Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran announced the Florida Department of Education will be withholding the monthly salaries of school board members in two counties after those districts enacted mask mandates that have no parental opt-out.
“We’re going to fight to protect parent’s rights to make health care decisions for their children. They know what is best for their children. What’s unacceptable is the politicians who have raised their right hands and pledged, under oath, to uphold the Constitution but are not doing so. Simply said, elected officials cannot pick and choose what laws they want to follow,” said Corcoran in a news release Monday.
The two districts in question are Alachua and Broward county.
