When the Florida Department of Education blocked an Advanced Placement test in African-American studies, it claimed it did so because the course lacked educational value (“Florida Bans AP African-American Studies Course From Public Schools” The Wall Street Journal, Jan. 20). Yet Florida allows AP tests in European history, Spanish, German and Italian language and culture.
Since that is the case, what is the real reason that the course is being attacked? I think it’s because it stresses victimhood. That is a legitimate concern. I fail to understand how African American students are helped. Woke indoctrination is antithetical to real education.
