​RE:  ​Comprehensive Religion Policy needs Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for the 2017-74 Religious Expression in Public ​Schools ​Law.

Dear Honorable Jeff Brandes:

        Just a short note about Florida's Religious Expression Policy and a very similar example of President Trump's new executive order protecting religious freedom throughout his administration in the link below.  Please note also the "two memoranda" highlighted in the link.  The "first" is a 25 page PDF that demonstrates the need to make Florida's policy comprehensive.  The "second" is a 2 page PDF for their implementation.  

        I would recommend a reading of both memoranda just to be familiar with the complexity of the subject.  Because of that complexity I do not see how Florida's teachers, administrators and school board personnel can be expected to follow Florida's Religious Expression policy without specific instruction (annually?) or without Continuing Education Units (CEUs).

Trump ​ Instructs DOJ to Protect Religious Freedom - Liberty Counsel ​ Oct 6, 2017 | WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Trump administration ​ strongly protected the free exercise of religion today by ​ reversing Obama-era policies with new legal guidance issued to the ​ Department of Justice (DOJ) by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.  The ​ Attorney General issued two memoranda.  The first addressed to all ​ administrative agencies and executive departments, identifies 20 ​ key principles of religious liberty.  The guidance reminds agencies ​ of their obligations under federal law to protect religious ​ liberty, and summarizes twenty key principles of religious-liberty ​ protections ...  Attorney Sessions’ second ​memorandum, addressed to DOJ components and United States Attorney’s ​offices, directs the implementation of that guidance ... ​ (emphases added.)

        My previous emails referenced these applicable links where CEUs were made available in other states:
