DeSantis admin rejects AP African Studies course for lack of educational value

The Florida Department of Education (FDOE) has rejected an Advanced Placement course from the College Board on African American studies, saying that the course "lacks educational value."

In a letter sent to Brian Adams, Senior Director of the College Board Florida Partnership, the FDOE’s Office of Articulation stated that "As presented, the content of this course is inexplicably contrary to Florida law and significantly lacks educational value."

"In the future, should College Board be willing to come back to the table with lawful, historically accurate content, FDOE will always be willing to reopen the discussion," the January 12 letter added.
