What Educators Should Know About Mike Johnson, New Speaker of the House

This guy is a rightwinger to the bone.

Serving his fourth term in Congress, Republican Rep. Mike Johnson has supported banning instruction about gender identity and sexuality for children under age 10, prohibiting transgender girls from joining girls’ athletic teams, and curtailing federal funding for any entity that teaches that the United States is fundamentally racist.

Other policies that Johnson has supported could radically change the way the federal government dispenses funds to U.S. schools and create a federal program funding private school choice.
