Published by: Fantasy Blogg

Vice President Kamala Harris is scheduled to travel to Jacksonville, Florida, to address the state Board of Education's new Black history curriculum standards.

The trip aims to highlight efforts in protecting fundamental freedoms, specifically the freedom to learn and teach America's full and accurate history.

Harris, the daughter of a civil rights activist, will meet with parents, educators, civil rights leaders, and elected officials during her visit.

In her recent remarks, Harris criticized some states' attempts to ban books and promote revisionist history.

The Florida Board of Education approved new standards, including teaching that some Black people benefited from slavery due to useful skills acquired.

The curriculum changes were mandated by the "Stop Wrongs to Our Kids and Employees Act," also known as the "Stop WOKE Act.

Harris' visit will also address important issues like voting rights, gun violence, and women's autonomy.

The Florida Education Association expressed strong opposition to the new curriculum, considering it a step backward.

Members of Florida's African American History Standards Workgroup defended the new standards, stating they aim to show how some slaves developed specialized skills for their benefit.

Harris has been actively involved in advocating for gun safety measures and abortion protections as essential in safeguarding fundamental freedoms.
