Ron DeSantis claims ‘Founding Fathers’ would reject sociology in remarks to homeschoolers

'It's highly ideological and it is not the type of academic rigor that we're looking for.'

Gov. Ron DeSantis is sounding off about sociology yet again. And this time the architects of the American experience have his back.

The Governor went back for a second slam of the academic discipline in as many months on Thursday, in remarks to the Florida Homeschool Convention in Orlando.

“Florida used to require all students to take a course in sociology,” DeSantis reflected. “Now, look, if you want to do sociology, I mean, fine but why are we requiring sociology but not requiring American history or other classical subjects? So we in Florida we got rid of the requirement that you have to do sociology. And we added a requirement for American history for all of our undergrads. The media did not like that at all.”

The Governor wasn’t done with the press corps, though.

“But think about it. Why would they get upset about that? If this is such an important subject, then you wouldn’t have to mandate, there would be people that would do it right. And people would be crawling over,” DeSantis added. “But really, it’s very mushy. It’s highly ideological and it is not the type of academic rigor that we’re looking for and that our Founding Fathers would have thought essential to be educating folks.”

The precise education system the Founding Fathers might have wanted is a matter of speculation, of course, but the crowd was good with his latest visitation of the topic.

He’d previously griped about “sociology” degrees as bad value in a recent denunciation of President Joe Biden’s restructuring of student loan debt obligations.

“He doesn’t have the authority to do. It is to basically say, you know, ‘If you’re a truck driver, you didn’t go to college, you don’t have student debt. Sorry, you’re going to have to pony up to pay the student loans of somebody, you know, who maybe got a degree in sociology or something and is not gainfully employed and can’t afford the loans.’ That is not fair,” DeSantis said in St. Petersburg  last month.

According to ZipRecruiter, it is possible for Floridians to make a living wage of close to $50,000 per year with a sociology degree, though that number is roughly $20,000 below the national average, in yet another illustration of depressed wages in an increasingly expensive state.

    Of course, DeSantis hates sociology. He also hates Sunshine Laws equity, and transparency. Sociology helps us understand the dynamics that gird our political, social, and economic systems. People like DeSantis want people to remain stupid, ignorant and unquestioning. This from the guy who refuses to allow outdoor workers in South Florida water breaks while laboring in 100+ degree heat.

    And by the way, most of our founding fathers refused to consider women equal citizens, worthy of voting or owning property. Most all benefitted from the enslavement of human beings. In other words, the “good old days” for so-called “originalists.”

I agree this is despicable and the owner should face consequences, but the state says it’s “pro-life”, but won’t mandate that outdoor workers have water breaks when the heat and humidity are well over 100 degrees. Why are not people’s lives at least as important, as dogs.

    OMG, I’m about to get started. Why is he even talking about sociology to homeschoolers? Especially since private schools and homeschools do not have to follow the same curriculum as the public schools in Florida. Moreover, public schools have never mandated that sociology be taken. However, history is a requirement in public schools. Why is he even talking about a rigorous education to those who home school. Home and private schools can CREATE THEIR OWN CURRICULUM AND
    ARE NOT REQUIRED TO ADMINISTER STANDARDIZED TESTS NOR DO THEIR STUDENTS HAVE TO TAKE THEM. It’s just beyond my comprehension as to why Desantis is hell bent on turning out future dummies.

        The Republican margin of registered voters over the Democrats’ has only increased exponentially since then. I suppose that’s why John Morgan of Morgan & Morgan, one of the erstwhile megadonors to the Democratic Party of Florida, called the political organization “a joke”, adding that its current chair, Nikki Fried, would never again win statewide office. He was smart in leaving the Democratic Party of Florida. Other registered Democrats in Florida have reportedly followed his lead. #LeadershipMatters. Meanwhile, DeSantis has won another lawsuit filed against him in federal court by supporters of another state attorney removed by America’s Governor for neglect of duty. It was but a few months ago that Disney’s lawsuit against America’s Governor was “summarily” dismissed in federal court. He just keeps winning with more than two years left in the Governor’s Mansion. Rest assured he’ll be doing even more in the months and years to come. It’s only fitting that the Lee County Board of County Commissioners want to name a bridge after him in honor of his leadership, especially in times of emergency and crisis. I love the free state of Florida, but paradise is not for everyone.

          They kissed made up in time for Jeb! to sit on the second inaugural stage. But, not to celebrate — he was shuffled off, stage right, to let the the snufflers take the stage.

        Not to put to fine a point on it, but the enslaved didn’t worship the documents you do: Here’s a quote from a letter the author had left for his [former] enslaver in 1839, shortly before escaping:.

        “Sir, I have left you not to return,” he wrote. The letter was signed, “No longer yours, John S. Jacob.”

        The Constitution was redeemed by the Reconstruction Amendments, and most historians agree that the Civil War was the original revolution — which had to be fought for and restored again after WW2.

        False narrative propagated by the neo-Marxist national teachers’ union that has since been debunked.

          oh, my, “false narrative” is spit out of Desantis mouth. google it. Florida is #50th in the nation for teacher pay. Google SAT scores too. 9,000 teacher left Florida last year due to book banning and other BS due to Desantis. You might be delusional, if you believe Desantis is your savior.

        Florida is having trouble attracting top national talent at colleges and universities because of the culture war nonsense and climate of regression that has made Florida a laughing stock and a place with little regard for academic freedom and freedom of expression.

          Wrong Michael K [Dook 4 Brains Lefty],
          Florida does not want “Your Stupid Idea of Top Talent”. We are doing just fine with our “Sage Acidemic Talent” here in Florida without any of your “Dook 4 Brains Lefty Professors and Administrators”.
          Thank you very much Michael K [Dook 4 Brains Lefty],

            Gracious Senior Elvis for stepping in and doing the spanking of that dook Michael K. My cousin SloPoke had already tracked his Mamacieta’s smelly basement apartment and was loading up to go spank that dook Michael K himself.
            Thanks to you now Senior Elvis both me and my Savant Genius Couson SloPoke will be relaxing of the sphincters on Sunday and Mondays American holiday of the old military Dayo De El Morte.

      Yes, Sally B, we covered that last year when you were in Iowa. The methodology is very silly, something about percentage of high schoolers who graduate, the in-state tuition for college, the percentage of citizens having a college degree, and debt incurred for education. It’s nothing about quality or return on investment or even any type of worthiness.

      Basically the #1 ranking means there’s lots of elderly retirees in Florida, high schools pass every student, and high schools inflated grades for scholarship award purposes while in state tuition in Florida schools is low because the schools are so bad they can’t even do football right. And nobody goes into debt to go to a Florida school, lol. Ain’t nobody that foolish with their money.

      That includes only a #10 ranking for K-12 education, a number which will be dropping precipitously as qualified educators continue to flee Tiny D’s tinpot dictatorship.

    Sociology has been an academic discipline since the time of the founders, you absolute dolt, Tiny D.
    Sorry you’re so scared of the voting population learning what a bunch of craven corrupt cowards you RepubliQans all are.
