The Florida Department of Education dismissed 54 math textbooks from its curriculum on Friday, saying the books were a part of an attempt to "indoctrinate" students - with more than half of them suspended for citing Critical Race Theory (CRT).

The agency tossed out 41 percent of the 132 math textbooks proposed for next year's curriculum because they were not "aligned with Florida standards or included prohibited topics and unsolicited strategies," the DOE said in a statement on Friday.

"Reasons for rejecting textbooks included references to Critical Race Theory (CRT), inclusions of Common Core, and the unsolicited addition of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) in mathematics," the department added, noting that all three learning practices are banned in the state.

"The highest number of books rejected were for grade levels K-5, where an alarming 71 percent were not appropriately aligned with Florida standards or included prohibited topics and unsolicited strategies."

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis had banned CRT as a piece in Florida schools, claiming it encourages hatred among students and makes individuals feel guilty for racism of the past.

"It seems that some publishers attempted to slap a coat of paint on an old house built on the foundation of Common Core, and indoctrinating concepts like race essentialism, especially, bizarrely, for elementary school students,' he said of the rejected books.

"I'm grateful that Commissioner [of Education Richard] Corcoran and his team at the Department have conducted such a thorough vetting of these textbooks to ensure they comply with the law."

Florida Commissioner of Education Richard Corcoran said the other 24 banned books were tossed out for including Common Core and SEL practices, which were outlawed in the state in 2019, and failing to align to the department's standards of education.

"We're going to ensure that Florida has the highest-quality instructional materials aligned to our nationally-recognized standards," said Corcoran. "Florida has become a national leader in education under the vision and leadership of Governor DeSantis.

"When it comes to education, other states continue to follow Florida's lead as we continue to reinforce parents' rights by focusing on providing their children with a world-class education without the fear of indoctrination or exposure to dangerous and divisive concepts in our classrooms," Corcoran said.

Corcoran said he had cautioned publishers to make sure the books kept up with the state's laws when he invited them to submit the textbooks last year.

The DOE added, "It is unfortunate that several publishers, especially at the elementary school grade levels, have ignored this clear communication and have attempted to slip rebranded instructional materials based on Common Core Standards into Florida's classrooms, while others have included prohibited and divisive concepts such as the tenets of CRT or other unsolicited strategies of indoctrination – despite DOEs prior notification."
