Florida DOE rejects 54 math books due to critical race theory content

The Florida Department of Education rejected more than 50 mathematics textbooks — about 40% of those submitted — for failing to meet Florida’s new learning standards or because they “contained prohibited topics” that included references to critical race theory.

In its press release issued late Friday, the FDOE announced it had disapproved what they said was a record number of math textbooks — 54 of 134 — submitted by publishers.

More than half the textbooks being disallowed incorporated “prohibited topics or unsolicited strategies, including CRT,” while others were not allowed because publishers “rebranded” Common Core Standards.

The titles of any textbooks deemed unacceptable were not disclosed by state officials. Most textbooks that will not be allowed for use by Florida public schools were for students in elementary grades kindergarten through fifth grade.
