DeSantis BANS New AP African American Studies Class Sparking OUTRAGE | Roland Martin
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis's administration blocked a new Advanced Placement course for high school students on African American studies.
Florida Department of Education's Office of Articulation, which approves the AP curriculum vetoed the program because it was inexplicably contrary to Florida law and significantly lacked educational value. The FDOE did not elaborate on what the agency found objectionable.
The rejection of the Advanced Placement African American Studies course is a part of Desantis' continuous efforts to ban race from being taught in Florida's educational curriculum.
In 2021, the state enacted a law that banned teaching the history of systemic racism in the United States and materials from The 1619 Project. And Last year, DeSantis signed a bill restricting how schools can discuss race with students.
Florida State Representative Minority Leader Fentrice Driskell spoke with Roland Martin about DeSantis' block on AP African American studies.
