A Florida mother and Sarasota County school board member reacted Thursday to news that the Florida Board of Education voted to ban critical race theory from state classrooms.

The rule, initially advanced by Gov. Ron DeSantis, instructs Florida schools to be “factual and objective,” and limits teaching of certain ideas regarding race and history.

Both are set to substantially increase earnings and free cash flow (FCF) in the coming years. Instead of thinking about them as suffering companies in the beaten-down aerospace industry, there’s a case for arguing that they are both embarking on a multi-year growth trajectory that will lead them to substantive FCF generation. The question is: Which will get to $7 billion in FCF first?

Fox News contributor and former history teacher Leo Terrell said on Tuesday that the American Federation of Teachers president “lied” about the “importance of critical race theory” and that the American Revolution was predicated on preserving slavery.

“Look, it’s very clear that 1607 and 1619 and the slave issue was discussed and being discussed in American history but to make the premise that the American Revolution was fought on slavery is an outright lie. And I submit to you, that this union president, was afraid of losing her job if she said the wrong thing,” Terrell told “Fox & Friends,”
