Emily Bloch: Florida Students Say They’re Walking Out and Teaching Themselves Banned History Lessons to Protest Censorship and Anti-LGBTQ Laws in Education

Hundreds of high school and college students across the Sunshine State are walking out of classrooms as part of a protest organizers say is against the state government’s censorship and erasure when it comes to race and gender identity in education.
At noon, they’ll check their voter registration status, send a letter to local school board members and Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis pledging they’ll use their vote to defend students’ rights, and take part in a five-minute banned history lesson that will focus on censorship and historic figures in Black and LGBTQ history.

The kids are all right.
