FL: DeSantis regime rejects AP African American studies for government schools

Source: The Hill

“Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s (R) administration has sent a letter to the College Board rejecting the new Advanced Placement African American Studies course. In a letter to Brian Barnes, senior director of the College Board Florida Partnership, the Florida Department of Education said ‘the content of this course is inexplicably contrary to Florida law and significantly lacks educational value.’ … The letter, signed by the department’s Office of Articulation, did not name which law the course violated or what part of the curriculum it was objecting to. When reached for comment Thursday, the department did not answer those questions. … DeSantis’s office did not immediately respond to The Hill’s request for comment.” (01/19/23)
