    The truly scary part is that most polls show her trailing badly to at least one of the other clowns on stage. If you watch that debate and conclude that someone other than Cheney is actually sane, much less qualified for the job, then you're beyond help.

    DeSantis and his Florida Department of Education are holding a three-day summer civics training program for teachers across Florida. DeSantis announced at a press conference that the training program would push back on "woke indoctrination" of children and claimed that Florida schoolkids would now be learning "real history", and that "We're unabashedly promoting civics and history that is accurate and that is not trying to push an ideological agenda."

    However, a number of teachers who have attended the program told The Washington Post that it was one-sided and taught inaccurate history. Among other things, the Post found that the teacher workshop included the phrase that it was a "misconception" that the Founding Fathers desired "strict separation of church and state", and slides for the workshop obtained by The Miami Herald had a graphic stating that George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were opposed to slavery without ever mentioning that they owned slaves.

    "My takeaway from the training is that civics education in the state of Florida right now is geared toward pushing some particular points of view," Broward County teacher Richard Judd told the Post. "The thesis they ran with is that there is no real separation of church and state." Judd told the Post that teachers were told, "This is the way you should think."

    Barbara Segal, a 12th-grade government teacher at Fort Lauderdale High School, told the Tampa Bay Times that the training was "very skewed." "There was a very strong Christian fundamentalist way toward analyzing different quotes and different documents. That was concerning," Segal said. Anna Fusco, president of the Broward Teachers Union, told the Post some teachers who attended told her that they were being told to present just "one side" of history. "Then they kind of slipped in a Christian values piece, ignoring the fact that this country is made up of so many different cultures and religions," Fusco said.

    Just another sign that these are dark times for American public education.
