Florida Department of Education released what it describes as problematic material and left-wing indoctrination, leading it to ban dozens of math textbooks, including a lesson with an algebra graph measuring racial bias.

The department claimed that some of the books had topics banned in the state’s schools on Critical Race Theory. As a result, it published four specific pages of textbooks showing the content it objected to.

“These examples do not represent an exhaustive list of input received by the department. The department continues to provide publishers with the opportunity to remedy all deficiencies identified during the review to ensure that Florida’s school districts and students have the broadest selection of high-quality instructional materials,” the Department of Education explained.

“More than 2 million people have tested their racial bias using an online version of the Implicit Association Test. The average scores for most groups are between ‘slight’ and ‘moderate bias,’ but the differences between groups by age and political identification are intriguing,” says one of the math problems.

Against indoctrination

This Friday, Governor Ron DeSantis signed House Bill (HB) 7, to provide businesses, employees, children and families with tools for what he called the “awakening in the face of indoctrination.”

“In Florida, we will not allow the far left’s woke agenda to take over our schools and workplaces. There is no place for indoctrination or discrimination in Florida,” the Republican stressed.
