Is the President interfering in our school system?

Schools receive federal funding several ways. Mainly based on enrollment and type of student. Most money for special needs, then gifted/advanced and last regular education. Title I money kicks in depending upon how many students qualify for free or reduced lunch. Title IX funding is what the President is threatening to withhold. That’s overreach. (And blackmail in my book.)if schools don’t comply with gender fluid bathrooms/lockerooms.

Congress appropriates funding not the president but he’s far across the line anyway.
Unisex bathrooms were originally offered by the schools. They were rejected. By the one girl that complained, in 2014, then one boy (2015). Neither was satisfied and demanded access to not only their gender preferred bathroom but also school showers. And THAT is when schools, correctly, drew the line.
While you may see people as haters, schools see all the children. They will not put 999 children at risk so one (1) doesn’t get their feelings hurt. Especially when it’s a 15 year old boy who identifies as a girl. That day. Tomorrow he may be back to a boy. Or a dog. Or a goat. (I am not joking both are the latest trends too so where does it stop? It stops with the 999 students who are just trying to get through HS.)
If you call these people haters then that’s your problem. Not theirs. And you must not have a daughter. But again if you don’t understand that a comprise was offered then rejected yet you still call them haters, you are part of the problem.
Common Core: Take it or you get no money

Regarding the standards set by the FDOE. The entire country has talked about Common Core. How it was forced on the States and the content. 
States choose their books from a given list. In some subjects books can be chosen at the county level. (Usually what happens because you pick, you buy.) The list comes from FDOE.
And why in the world would any middle school State history class be taught in another State? The standard is that it is to be taught. In depth. Number of counties, State bird, flower, seal, motto, etc.

Hopefully that makes both things just a little clear. I keep seeing this same comments. Just let me know!
