Florida Shuts The Door On Sneaky Leftist Attempt To Indoctrinate School Kids!

The Florida Department of Education recently made the decision to ban a huge amount of proposed math textbooks after a review found the textbooks were filled with Critical Race Theory and a number of other pieces of left-wing propaganda.

41% of the books proposed for grades K-12 to be used during the 2022-2023 public school year were rejected by the state, failing to meet state academic standards due to the inclusion of CRT and more.

“Reasons for rejecting textbooks included references to Critical Race Theory (CRT), inclusions of Common Core, and the unsolicited addition of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) in mathematics,” Florida’s Department of Education said in a statement.

The highest number of books rejected were for grade levels K-5, where an alarming 71 percent were not appropriately aligned with Florida standards or included prohibited topics and unsolicited strategies,” Florida’s D.O.E. added.

“It seems that some publishers attempted to slap a coat of paint on an old house built on the foundation of Common Core, and indoctrinating concepts like race essentialism, especially, bizarrely, for elementary school students,” Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) said in a statement exposing the publishers of the textbooks.

Early in 2020, DeSantis announced a new set of academic standards for his state, replacing Common Core with a new standard titled, “Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking,” or “B.E.S.T.” 

The Department of Education said they had been straightforward in the instructions given to textbook publishers during the 2021 submittal process for the 2022-2023 school year, the first year “B.E.S.T” would be put into place.

They said that publishers were well aware of the fact that textbooks must align to the B.E.S.T. Standards, state laws regarding required instruction, and that they should not incorporate unsolicited strategies such as SEL in their instructional materials.

We’re going to ensure that Florida has the highest-quality instructional materials aligned to our nationally-recognized standards,” Commissioner of Education Richard Corcoran said in a statement.

When it comes to education, other states continue to follow Florida’s lead as we continue to reinforce parents’ rights by focusing on providing their children with a world-class education without the fear of indoctrination or exposure to dangerous and divisive concepts in our classrooms,” Corcoran added.

In total, 54 books out of 132 proposed books were rejected for K-12 classes. Publishers do have an option to appeal the state’s decision.

I’m grateful that Commissioner Corcoran and his team at the Department have conducted such a thorough vetting of these textbooks to ensure they comply with the law,” DeSantis added in a press release.

Democrats were quick to attack DeSantis over the state’s move to reject the propaganda filled textbooks.

Florida State Representative Carlos Smith (D) tweeted, “#DeSantis is hysterically pulling math books outta FL schools claiming they ‘indoctrinate’ kids with CRT.  This isn’t just crazy right-wing pandering — next they’ll spend MILLIONS of tax dollars forcing schools to buy math books from GOP campaign donors.

DeSantis’ Press Secretary Christina Pushaw reacted, saying that critics needed a “reality check,” before adding that a homework assignment in Missouri that used questionable topics shows that it’s “no wonder China is winning” when it comes to education.

Pushaw said, “This is math homework from a public school district in Missouri. How does this help kids learn algebra, exactly? No wonder China is winning…”

The worksheet included questions asking if Nobel Laureate poet Maya Angelou was “sexually abused by her mother’s’ boyfriend, brother or father” and another which asked whether the writer worked as a “pimp, prostitute and bookie, Drug Dealer or Night Club Dancer”  to support her son as a single mother.

Pushaw used it as an example of how inappropriate lessons can wind up in the classroom, and why Florida’s rejection of certain books was necessary.

So instead of having a hissy fit because @GovRonDeSantis banned CRT math textbooks, ask yourself why CRT is being injected in math instruction to begin with?” Pushaw tweeted.

I promise you, in China kids aren’t learning about pimping in math class,” she added.
