Almost half the math textbooks submitted to the Florida Dept. of Education this year have been rejected (https://justthenews.com/nation/states/center-square/florida-rejects-41-submitted-math-books-over-crt-other-issues). Why?
Because–you could probably have guessed this–what are supposed to be math textbooks also contain illegal (in Florida) dollops of Critical Race Theory, Common Core, and Social Emotional Learning (SEL), whatever that is. SEL for them means SOL for us taxpayers. Under Florida’s standards, none of that stuff is allowed.
Math books for grades K-5 were the worst of the lot: 71% of those had to be rejected.

Hot dog. They call it “education.”
Oh. They’re also larding the math books with “race essentialism.” Translation: “Race is everything.”
Yeah, folks, keep on sending your children to public schools and colleges. You’ll deserve the Useful Idiots you get.
