Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Announces  Proposal To Increase Minimum Salary For Florida Teachers
The highest number of books rejected were for grade levels K-5, in which 71% of submitted materials were deemed inappropriate under Florida standards.

Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran has approved the state’s initial adoption list for mathematics textbooks — but only after eliminating 41% of submitted materials considered “impermissible” due to new standards, or for containing “prohibited topics.”

For grades K-12, Florida is initially not including 54 of the 132 (41%) submitted math textbooks on the state’s adopted list. The number of math books disapproved by the Florida Department of Education in the new adoption list is the most in Florida’s history, according to a news release sent out by the department.

“We’re going to ensure that Florida has the highest-quality instructional materials aligned to our nationally recognized standards,” Corcoran said in a statement. “Florida has become a national leader in education under the vision and leadership of Gov. DeSantis. 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.”

When the FDOE reviewed the submitted materials to create the approved list, the department rejected textbooks that included references to Critical Race Theory (CRT), included Common Core or featured the unsolicited addition of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) in mathematics, according to a news release from the department.

The highest number of books rejected were for grade levels K-5, where 71% of submitted materials were deemed inappropriate under Florida standards. For middle school grade levels, 6-8, 20% of materials were rejected, and for high school levels, 9-12, 35% of textbooks were disapproved of.

The department offered a breakdown of why the books were disapproved — 21%, or 28 textbooks, were not included because they “incorporate prohibited topics or unsolicited strategies, including CRT”; 9%, or 12 books, were not included because they do not properly align to B.E.S.T. Standards; and 11%, or 14 books, do not align with standards and incorporate prohibited topics.

Despite the large number of books excluded, the department ensured that every core mathematics course and grade is covered with at least one textbook.

The news of the banned textbooks comes after Gov. Ron DeSantis signed into law a bill that makes it easier for parents to challenge books and instructional materials they don’t approve of. Supporters of the legislation say it gives parents more involvement in their children’s education, but opponents argue it opens the door to massive book bans. Of note, Florida has third-largest number of school book ban incidents in the country.

“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,” DeSantis said in a statement. “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.”

However, opponents are pushing back following the approved textbook list announcement. Orange County Democratic Rep. Anna Eskamani took to Twitter to express her concern over the significant number of textbook rejections.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if Florida Republican leaders are preparing to ban Algebra from high schools. They object to the subliminal use of [brackets] as an indoctrination to the concept of inclusion, they don’t like the equal sign, and they hate solving problems,” she wrote in a tweet.

Although not included on the state’s initial adopted list, publishers have the ability to appeal any non-adoption decision. Publishers also have the ability to substitute or revise submitted bids to be included on the state’s adopted list if the substitution or revision of submitted instructional materials ultimately meets Florida’s bid specifications.

    I need DETAILS, what was the language that the NAZIs felt was inappropriate? MY guess is that it was most likely because there was a word problem that probably used names OTHER THAN Mike, Matt, John, and Luke. Just my guess, probably said something like, Aaliyah has 5 apples, and Chaquille has 3 apples, how many total apples are there. In all seriousness, until I see the actual reason they were ban, I am willing to bet my guess is very close to reality.

            Critical race theory is taught in schools

            In my school, students in math class were asked to graph incidents of racism at our school.

            Our staff, in which probably 99% are Ibram Kendi-worshipping woke liberals, were found to be viciously racist according to the graphs. They committed such heinously racists acts such as asking students to raise their hands, and expecting their students to arrive to class on time.

            The students were never challenged on their perceptions. Instead, they were congratulated for doing “the work” and standing up to injustice.

            Our test scores are abysmal, students can barely read, but they at least know how to vote! Well done Liberals!

          There were details. I found this looking for the page again that actually reported the entire story. One question in a book asked “ Angelou was sexually abused by her mother’s _____ at age 8, which shaped her career choices and motivation for writing.” Using the math formula given, they had to choose “boyfriend,” “brother,” or “father” as the answer.”

          The correct answer to the algebra problem coincided with an answer to fill the missing blank.

          Pennsylvania banned that question in 2017…do a search for the quote.

          Where was the outrage then?

            The question wasn’t wasn’t from a textbook. That part is flat out wrong. It was from an online resource for teachers. But it absolutely was part of an assignment given to students at a PA school, which is another issue and quite disturbing.

          Compilation would take a good minute… if the State Department of Education did the review of texts, that is where you might look for your answers. But I don’t think answers will satisfy leftists. Look at Twitter, protesting the a Constitutional right! The whole notion of SEL is ludicrous. Turning kids with sponges for brains into piles of emotions, sitting at a desk. Teach them to think for themselves, and not become reactive to all information they Feel is wrong, according to texts. Thinkers are what we want, not emotional activists.

        The article states the objections, but as a retired teacher, it is hard for me to imagine any math textbook having anything to do with critical race theory or things like it, but the article states that 21% did. A few examples would have been helpful to make the case.

      You sound exactly like a person who supports the indoctrination of children instead of education. Leftists infest our education system and their goal id to keep creating future Leftists. All that woke, CRT racism and things other than the 3 Rs does NOT belong in the classroom of any child. Anything else is INDOCTRINATION of young minds ad absolutely unacceptable.

    Why is the party of small government monitoring everything people do? This whole thing about giving parents more choices in their children’s education is a complete lie.
    Apparently teaching about slavery, the diaspora, Martin Luther King, Harriet Tubman, Ruby Bridges, the civil rights movement, the poor people’s campaign, etc is seen is CRT. This is blatant white washing of our countries history.
    As far as the LGBTQ attacks, it’s disgusting what the Republicans are doing. My whole childhood I read about Cis gender white people and I’m bisexual. I didn’t have separation that idea planted in my head. I was born this way. You can’t catch the gay.
    These people are so uncomfortable and outraged because their world is rapidly becoming more inclusive and they hate it.
    What a bunch of troglodytes.

      Typical Liberal thinking. Way. way back when I attended grade and high school we were taught American history. It wasn’t whitewashed (oops is that a racist term?). We learned about slavery, MLK, Harriet Tubman and the underground railroad, the Civil War, why it was fought and the struggle of the Blacks throughout. Teachers were not biased, questions by students were always answered honestly. We learned and how to think for ourselves. Nobody pushed any of what is now known as the LGBTQ+, woke or CRT on students and, those that were such , lived quietly among us with no repercussions or stigma, causing no problems, same with the Black community that shared our schools events and everything else equally. Problem today is these have become special interest groups demanding and forcing others to adapt to their way of thinking and acting and making huge exceptions for them. This builds resentment on both sides . Why cant those of the LGBTQ+ community just live among us instead of trying to change the sex of children by confusing them at early ages and indoctrinating them. It wasn’t a problem in my generation so why are you making it a problem now? Leave the kids alone. P.s. I am 85 years of age.

    This is the funny part: “Florida has become a national leader in education under the vision and leadership of Governor DeSantis.”
    By “national” he means Louisiana and Alabama and other states who spend as little money on education as possible while hunting down culture war enemies with all their energy and will. Good job Goobernor Ron, you’re a real leader of goobers.

      Sounds about right. My oldest son went to live with his dad in FL from PA just after he entered 3rd grade. He called so proud of getting all A’s. I was proud also until he sent some of his schoolwork and it was 2nd grade level in PA. He got A’s because he’d already done that work. They were at least a grade level behind in FL. He wasn’t learning anything new there.

      I am a certified teacher (retired). I tutored children in Cleveland with the best math workbook I have ever seen. It is a 1949 Silver Burdett, Making Sure of Arithmetic for first grade. The figures are drawings in black and white on white paper. The only thing I changed was that I shaded some of the figures with pencil and made one copy at a time for a student. It was simple, graduated in difficulty, taught about each number separately and how to draw it. Children are allowed to write in K without being taught or supervised and results are not good. There is a reason that we teachers were taught to use Zaner-Bloser methods. Because it was the best and it worked. Sorry to say that Pearson has a monopoly because they bought the copyrights to Silver Burdett, Scott, Foresman, etc. Follow the money.

      Yes. Common core is an idea that has been hi-jacked. E.D. Hirsch, Jr. wrote a book, “Cultural Literacy,” in which he explains that with all the diverse people in the country it would be helpful to have a common basic curriculum to work from. And Larry is giving an example of it that he experienced. To elaborate, it helps if everyone understands references to Sacajawea, “not too hot, not too cold, but just right,” origins of slavery, the American Civil War, Pearl Harbor, the holocaust, the workings of our government-name the three branches of our federal government, etc. I presented World War II in half an hour to an 8th grade class which had never heard of it. I had to buy a map to put on the blackboard. There is a list of hundreds of references for the literate person to understand or at least have heard of in Dr. Hirsch’s book. Knowing about these references is to understand a kind of short-hand used by writers and speakers. It is valuable too to recent immigrants. I had a friend who was playing a game. “Peter Rabbit” was the identity pinned on his back. He was one of the top people in the NASA wind energy program. He had never heard of Peter Rabbit.

      Common Core in math is simply teaching the same math topics nationally so students transferring from state to state have a seamless transition. It was especially helpful for military children. There is absolutely nothing political about common core except higher expectations in math. I taught it for ten years and believe me its all math.

        The reactions to this are exactly what the Governor plays off of, by riling up the masses, all clinging to narratives unsupported by facts. Both sides do it, but it has reached the point of ridiculousness. The State should at least publish the list and specific examples so an actual debate on the issues can occur, instead of the hasty conclusions and snowball fallacies posted on this thread. My children went through the Florida Public Schools, and I teach math subjects at the college level. I can tell you, some of the books are just plain bad, for numerous reasons. But the hypersensitivity to narratives is the problem. What it does show, is that regardless of what books are chosen, education, especially as it relates to logic and reason, is left wanting.

    re-enactments-what’s wrong with learning about slavery how they became free or segregation and how states no longer have segregation? What is wrong with children learning how we learned from things that were not so good to making things better for everyone like the America claims to be? Just because you learn about something doesn’t mean it becomes your values. Why are people so afraid of education be it American History, Math? Maybe children are not afraid or fragile-it’s the parents and the politics that appear to be the cowards.

    54% of American adults can’t read above a 6th-grade level, but yet, DeSantis and Florida Republicans seem to think most Floridian parents are qualified to determine what’s adequate reading material for their kids. What a joke!

    It’s been two full days since DeSantis made this outrageous statement. We’re still waiting for his list of math books, date of publication and specific citations. Trust me…..parents were not involved with this decision.

    The article does not included titles or publishing companies of the books soooooo upsetting to snowflakes. I was a teacher, I wanted to see any familiar texts and what pray-tell is wrong with a MATH book?

    Here’s a Florida approved math problem: Joe Biden gets seven votes and Donald Trump gets six votes. For extra credit, explain why Donald Trump won the election.

    As an out of state reader, it appears that Florida is full of haters. Did any one of you even look for the what may be the good in what DeSantis proposed? Of course not. It’s easier to just complain and shout “racism” than to go the extra mile to seek information.
