Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) says that children across the state will not have to learn about critical race theory — which isn’t worth “one red cent of taxpayer money” — while he’s governor.

During a Wednesday news conference, DeSantis told the public that he plans to purge critical race theory from public schools.

According to a report from the Daily Wire, DeSantis said that the state should be more concerned on teaching “foundational principles” rather than “narratives such as critical race theory that views all of history through the lens of race, and suggests that racism still infects almost every institution in the U.S. today.”

In his remarks, DeSantis said, “Florida civics curriculum will incorporate foundational concepts with the best materials, and it will expressly exclude unsanctioned narratives like critical race theories and unsubstantiated theories. Let me be clear: There’s no room in our classrooms for things like critical race theory. Teaching kids to hate their country and to hate each other is not worth one red cent of taxpayer money. So we will invest in actual, solid, true curriculum and we will be a leader in the development and implementation of a world class civics education.”
