Florida rejects Holocaust ed textbooks in clampdown on ‘woke’ instructio

May 15, 2023

According to documents provided by the state, the education department did not approve any new texts on the Holocaust this year. One of this year’s rejected Holocaust textbooks was called “Modern Genocides,” and the other was an online learning course titled “History of the Holocaust.” Both were intended for high school students. Florida requires Holocaust education in grades K-12, and in 2020, DeSantis signed a law requiring public schools to certify that they teach about the Holocaust. The state did not elaborate on how the Holocaust books failed to adequately teach their subjects. The publishers for the two rejected Holocaust texts likewise did not respond to JTA requests for comment.
