Florida Curriculum Assessment

August 21, 2017

A coalition of citizen watchdogs presented Florida legislators with a “Florida Curriculum Assessment” during the 2016 and 2017 legislative sessions.

Florida Citizens’ Alliance (FLCA), a nonprofit organization, and a coalition of eighty groups across the state presented Florida legislators with a “Florida Curriculum Assessment” during the 2016 and 2017 legislative sessions.

The report detailed the findings of citizen watchdog committees in Florida schools who reviewed curriculum in eight counties and settled on six major areas of concern: English Language Arts, pornography, reconstructed history, religious and political indoctrination, and Common Core math methodologies. Unacceptable curricular examples included the glorification of teen sex and distorted accounts of America’s founding. One sixth grade history textbook explicitly stated children are descended from apes, and another declared anyone can qualify as an American citizen simply by wanting to be one.
