Ron DeSantis signed into law last week, say it is homophobic and makes local LGBTQ communities feel targeted, while supporters say parents have a right to choose what kind of information their child is exposed to.In a statement, Schmidt said the bill is aimed at giving children an education "without political activism," with Lopchik adding it "promotes free and fair discussion.""Children deserve a quality education that is fair, unbiased and age appropriate," Loychik said.Additionally, the bill bans schools from "using textbooks and imposing curriculum that promotes or endorses divisive and inherently racist concepts," according to Schmidt and Loychik's statement.Anyone found to be in violation of the rule would undergo a hearing, then the state superintendent would decide whether the complaint is valid.

If that decision is made, the Ohio Department of Education would withhold funding based on the "severity of the offense," which includes a "tiered funding penalty and terms for restoration of funds."This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.Update 4/5/22 5:20 p.m.
