- Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis is mulling a plan to replace Advanced Placement (AP) courses in the state’s curriculum amid a row with the College Board, which determines the content of that curriculum.
DeSantis and the College Board clashed last month over the inclusion of certain materials in the AP African-American studies course that the state Board of Education determined to violate Florida law.The state bars the teaching of Critical Race Theory and limits discussion of sexuality with younger students.
- DeSantis said Monday the College Board is an independent organization lacking compulsory authority and suggested that other groups might serve the same function just as well.
- “This College Board, like, nobody elected them to anything,” he said. “They’re just kind of there, and they’re providing service.”
