Florida education officials say books referenced critical race theory, more

The state Department of Education shares excerpts from books it has banned, including math textbooks.

Dozens of math textbooks were rejected by the Florida Department of Education after officials said their publishers were attempting to indoctrinate students.

The state shared examples of some of the math problems found in 54 books that it has rejected for use in classrooms.

Some of the examples provided by the department on Thursday show bar graphs that labeled conservatives as showing more racial prejudice than liberals. Another example provided by the FDOE is a word problem that begins with, “What? Me? Racist?” and asks the student to calculate a level of racial prejudice.

The department did not specify what books the excerpts came from.
