The Florida Department of Education rejected the College Board’s AP African American Studies, saying it lacked educational value and historical accuracy.
“As submitted, the course is a vehicle for a political agenda and leaves large, ambiguous gaps that can be filled with additional ideological material, which we will not allow,” Gov. Ron DeSantis’ Press Secretary Bryan Griffin said. “As Governor DeSantis has stated, our classrooms will be a place for education, not indoctrination.”
FDOE told the College Board in a letter that it can come back to the table with “lawful, historically accurate content” and the department will be willing to reopen the discussion.
