The Florida Department Of Education Clarified The Ban Against AP Psychology Course
The clarification comes just before 30 thousand students' schedules were about to be rearranged just before school started.
The Florida Department of Education clarified that state high schools are allowed to teach the Advanced Placement Psychology course.
The department said they believe the course can be taught in its entirety in a manner that is age and developmentally appropriate and the course remains listed in the high school catalog.
The education department originally argued that the college-level course, intended for high school juniors and seniors, violates Florida state law banning discussion of gender and sexual orientation issues in schools.
The clarification comes just before 30 thousand students’ schedules were about to be rearranged just before school started.
The conflict over the psychology course is part of an ongoing feud between Florida and the College Board that first sparked in January when Governor Ron DeSantis went after the AP African American Studies course.
