'Florida Rejects 54 Math Books, Claiming Critical Race Theory Appeared in Some' by Ayana Archie
Ayana Archie writes the following for NPR:
The Florida education department has rejected 54 mathematics textbooks for its K-12 curriculum, citing reasons spanning the inclusion of critical race theory to Common Core learning concepts.
The rejected books make up a record 41% of the 132 books submitted for review, the Florida Department of Education said in a statement.
Of them, 28 were rejected because they ‘incorporate prohibited topics or unsolicited strategies, including [critical race theory],’ the statement said. …
The names of the rejected books were not included.
