TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ administration has blocked a new Advanced Placement course on African American studies from being taught in high schools.
It says the class violates state law and is historically inaccurate.
The state education department rejected the program in a letter last week to the College Board, which oversees AP courses.
DeSantis last year signed legislation dubbed the Stop WOKE Act that restricts certain race-based conversations and analysis in schools and businesses.
The law bars instruction that says members of one race are inherently racist or should feel guilt for past actions committed by others of the same race, among other things.
