About this Episode

The union representing Florida teachers objects to a new rule that would force them to whitewash or ignore the unpleasant truths of U.S. history.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— Florida Education Association President Andrew Spar has more to say on that rule during the Sunrise interview.

— Gov. Ron DeSantis joins in what's described as an "Urgent Town Hall Meeting on Antisemitism."

— A Florida group trying to prevent sexual abuse of children is warning parents to keep better track of what their kids are doing online. One out of five kids who touch a digital device will receive some sort of sexual come-on and the number of reports of online enticements almost doubled last year during the pandemic.

— Congressman Greg Steube says delays at the Department of Veterans Affairs are killing veterans. He's trying to rally support for a bill allowing veterans to ditch the VA and get health care elsewhere.

— And finally, the stories of two Florida Men: One gets 30 years in the federal pen for drugs and dogfighting; the other used a sword to settle a fight over the TV.
