CRT Panic Prompts Florida To REJECT Math Textbooks
Florida’s Department of Education has rejected over 50 math textbooks for next year’s curriculum as they reportedly contained references to critical race theory, Common Core education, and Social-Emotional Learning. Out of the 132 books reviewed by the DOE, only one publisher’s full set of K-5 math textbooks were approved for use in the state so far. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss on The Young Turks.

“The Florida Department of Education announced Friday the state has rejected more than 50 math textbooks from next school year’s curriculum, citing references to critical race theory among reasons for the rejections.
In a news release, the department stated 54 out of 132 of the textbook submissions would not be added to the state’s adopted list because they did not adhere to Florida’s new standards or contained prohibited topics.
The release said the list of rejected books makes up approximately 41% of submissions, which is the most in Florida’s history.
Reasons for rejecting textbooks included references to critical race theory, “inclusions of Common Core, and the unsolicited addition of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) in mathematics,” the release states.
CNN has requested the list of book submissions, the titles that were rejected and the reasons for those rejections.
Gov. Ron DeSantis said on Monday there were different reasons for the books being rejected and officials aimed to “focus the education on the actual strong academic performance of the students.””
