Central Florida school librarians say new mandated training needs to be redone

School librarians and media specialists across Central Florida have to undergo an hour-long training session to help them understand new rules on what can and can’t be in school libraries.

Those rules came about as part of a wave of legislation that Gov. Ron Desantis said are about more transparency in education. That includes the Parental Rights In Education Act and the governor’s so-called “Stop WOKE” Act.

But some Central Florida media specialists think the training, which has to be completed by July, needs to be redone.
