Gov. Ron DeSantis insists there will be no more school closings because of COVID-19 — no matter how bad it gets.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:
— The Governor says keeping kids out of school does more harm than COVID in the classroom. He’s also claiming credit for the return of high school football.
— The only thing missing from DeSantis’ news conference was the big banner in the background saying, “mission accomplished.”
— Unions representing faculty and graduate students at the University of Florida are demanding answers after they were ordered back to the classroom next semester.
— Other universities are also pressuring faculty to teach in person instead of remotely in January; unions want to know who’s behind this. But they know … and you do too if you were listening about 30 seconds ago.
— A new congressional study says Florida has a lot at stake in the fight against global warming. According to the report, we could save more than 100,000 lives in Florida by returning to the goals of the Paris agreement (you know, the one that was overturned by Donald Trump).
— And finally, a couple of Florida Men lost their jobs after being accused of myriad offenses: sexual harassment, unwanted advances, a physical attack and sexual assault.
