Florida Gov Ron DeSantis has overhauled the process of how parents and schools interact in the state since he first took office. Now more and more Floridians are running for elective office and towing the historic and somewhat controversial Parental Right in Education law that the Governor signed in 2022. Megan Weinberger, who runs an animal rescue sanctuary and is a Foster care mentor, and who is running for the now-open State House 94 District that term-limited Rep. Rick Roth (R) currently represents, appears to be running on the social, economic, and education platform that Gov. DeSantis has championed.

During an interview with The Floridian, Weinberger, who is the Palm Beach chapter chairwoman for Mom's for Liberty, expressed her commitment and support of parents having “a seat at the table” at schools to address education curriculums.

“Empowering than a parent and their child, and there's nobody that cares more about your child than you as a parent. It's incredibly important for us to be involved in their education,” said Weinberger. “And to be involved in their education— I'm not a teacher I don't believe that I have all the answers. It's very important for you to know what's going on in your child's life.”

In addition, Weinberger echoed Gov. DeSantis's “Protect Religious Liberty” initiative that allows students to pray in schools. In June 2021, Gov. DeSantis signed HB 529 into law. HB 529 instituted a two-minute moment of silence for children in public schools.

“The idea that you can just push God out of every institution and be successful, I’m sorry, our Founding Fathers did not believe that,” DeSantis said.

Weinberger, who sees faith as being essential to a child’s upbringing,  says that she, “would love to have prayer school, and whether or not somebody chooses not to be a part of it,” she can respect their wishes.

“I believe that we should allow them to pray whichever religion they choose to follow.  Having faith is essential. Having a relationship with, a spiritual relationship with God.  I feel like that there's nothing more positive that we could support for our children. I would much rather my children want to go pray than want to go want to use drugs,” added Weinberger.

House Seat 94 is considered a very safe, farm-friendly Republican district.

In addition to Weinberger, Republicans Jon Carter, Anthony Aguirre, Christian Acosta, and Gabrielle Fox, and Democrat Rachelle Litt, have also registered to run for this state house seat.
