Florida rejects 54 math textbooks over ‘prohibited topics’ including critical race theory - https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2022/apr/17/florida-rejects-math-textbooks-critical-race-theory
"Florida’s education department has rejected 54 mathematics textbooks from next year’s school curriculum, citing alleged references to critical race theory among a range of reasoning for some of the rejections, officials announced.
The department said in a news release on Friday that some of the books had been rejected for failure to comply with the state’s content standards, Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking (Best), but that 21% of the books were disallowed “because they incorporate prohibited topics or unsolicited strategies, including CRT”.
Department officials disapproved an additional 11 books “because they do not properly align to Best Standards and incorporate prohibited topics or unsolicited strategies, including CRT”."
