The Florida Board of Education will discuss rule changes in schools


ORLANDO, Florida. – The Florida State Board of Education is due to meet on Wednesday to discuss new rules in Florida schools – including several prompted by the Parental Rights in Education Act passed earlier this year.

The law, which took effect in July, aims to give parents more control over their children’s education and exclude certain subjects from the K-3 curriculum.
