54 textbooks submitted for the state of Florida's approved list have been rejected by the Florida Department of Education.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Dozens of math textbooks were rejected by the Florida Department of Education after officials said their publishers were attempting to indoctrinate students.
According to an FDOE news release Friday, the department did not initially include 54 of the 132 submitted textbooks on the state’s adopted list.
The department states 41% of the submitted textbooks included references to critical race theory, common core and social emotional learning.
@EducationFL just announced they're banning dozens of math textbooks they claim "indoctrinate" students with CRT.
Orange County Classroom Teachers Association President Wendy Doromal said she was baffled after learning about the rejected textbooks.
Common core is used in some math textbooks, and those would not be aligned to Florida’s BEST standards,” Pushaw said. »
