Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Criticizes President Joe Biden Over Education Standards Controversy

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has taken a swipe at President Joe Biden over the criticism of new Florida education standards that highlight the benefits of slavery.

DeSantis accused the Harris-Biden administration of ignoring issues such as the border crisis, crime, and economic problems while focusing on Florida.

This came as Vice President Kamala Harris attacked the state's education standards, specifically a recommendation for middle schoolers to be taught how enslaved people developed skills that could benefit them personally.

The criticism of the education standards has been led by the Florida Education Association teachers union and the NAACP Florida State Conference.

However, officials responsible for the language have refused to back down, arguing that slaves should not just be seen as victims of oppression but also as strong and resilient.

DeSantis' attack on Biden comes as Republican politicians have been criticizing the president over his family matters, particularly his granddaughter and the dispute between Hunter Biden and his former partner over child support.

The matter was settled, and the child's name was not listed in court records.

Biden has not publicly acknowledged the child.

DeSantis has struggled to gain traction against former President Donald Trump's commanding national lead.

He has built his national profile by clashing with the White House, but some of his donors and allies are concerned about his performance.
