DeSantis says critical race theory infiltrating Florida math textbooks


Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran speaks at Friday's meeting of the state Board of Education.

News item: The Florida Department of Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran announced the state will be banning 41% of math textbooks in Florida’s public schools because they are attempting to “indoctrinate students” by containing “prohibited topics,” such as critical race theory.

Gov. DeSantis hailed the state’s effort, accusing math textbook publishers of injecting “indoctrinating concepts like race essentialism,” into math textbooks in Florida, especially in elementary schools.

“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,” DeSantis said.

Finally! It’s so comforting to see that Florida is taking the lead in exposing how the teaching of mathematics promotes white guilt.

It takes a real leader of uncommon, and almost hallucinogenic, vision to see the insidious way that critical race theory has infected math.
