About this Episode

Florida’s Board of Education is being asked to crack down on radical teachers who indoctrinate their students to “hate the U.S.A.” and “shame white kids for what their ancestors did.” Or is it politically motivated censorship to teach an idealized version of America that whitewashes our history and refuses to acknowledge the racial bias that permeates our society? This should be a fun meeting.

Also on today’s Sunrise:

— After weeks of dropping hints, Congresswoman Val Demings drops a video saying she's in the race to unseat Republican Sen. Marco Rubio … and the former police chief says she's the crime fighter.

— It won't lower your premiums, but Gov. Ron DeSantis says he's going to sign a bill that limits payouts for roof repairs … and attorneys.

— The Governor made those remarks during a video conference of the Enterprise Florida board, where the state's Chief Financial Officer got heckled.

— Pools are a fantastic way to beat the Florida heat, but Cassie McGovern says they can be deadly. McGovern manages the drowning prevention program for the Broward County Department of Health. Her daughter Em drowned when she was just 19 months old.

— And finally, two Florida Men risked their lives for Taco Tuesday.
