The Florida Board Of Education has been awarded Donkey Of The Day for approving controversial standards of how Black history should be taught.
Knowing that there's already controversy in the Florida air as far as Black history being taught in schools is concerned, today's Donkey Of The Day has been extended to the state's Board Of Education.
During a recent meeting at the Florida Department Of Education Board, the board approved a good number of rules which happened to be controversial of course.
One of said controversial rules, in particular, happens to be the way social studies gets taught as far as African American History is concerned for all grades involved.
A whole task force had to be brought in to re-write the African American History Curriculum to the point that the board feels like they have created a curriculum that provides a depth of knowledge of what African Americans have gone through.
Florida Department of Education Commissioner Manny Diaz Jr. had this to say, "It’s objective, it covers all the topics, and it's nonsense to say otherwise. I wish they would look at the details of the standards. Anyone with a background will see this shows all of the parts of African American History which is American History."
Senator Geraldine Thompson (Democrat) had this to add, "I think we are shortchanging our students. It’s the students who are going to suffer by not knowing the history and not knowing all of who we are. We can’t celebrate progress unless we acknowledge the pain that came with it."
