NAPLES, Fla.  — Florida Governor Ron DeSantis wants your students to learn civics.

The governor made a stop at the North Collier County Regional Park in Naples on Tuesday, where he announced students will now be required to learn civics education in school.

He says it will teach them the system of governments and principals that underlay our Constitution.
