DeSantis Doubles Down on Textbook Ban, Exposes Woke Math Problems

'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...'

(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) Anticipating more leftist spin from his state’s rejection of 54 math textbooks, Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis got out in front of the attack by providing evidence of the woke indoctrination included in them.

On Sunday, DeSantis’ press secretary, Christina Purshaw, tweeted out an example of a math lesson that combined Critical Race Theory with sexual content in a series of questions inexplicably related to poet Maya Angelou, Twitchy reported.

The Florida Education Department has rejected 54 math textbooks—or about 41% of those submitted for approval—because they push critical race theory and use ineffective teaching methods, the Gateway Pundit reported.

“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,” the department said in a news release.

Fourty-two textbooks contained progressive racial doctrines, while 12 failed to meet “B.E.S.T. Standards.”

Most of the rejected textbooks targeted young children.

The Education Department refused 71% of K-5 math textbooks but only 20% of 6-8 and 35% of 9-12 math textbooks.

“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,” said DeSantis, who spent time as a high school history teacher before entering politics.

“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,” he said.

The Education Deparmtnet approved at least one math textbook for every grade and course.

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

“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,” he continued.
