In response to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis‘ cancellation of the subject, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has announced intentions to expand AP African American History to dozens more schools.
In the 2023-2024 academic year, the newly established course will extend from one school to 26 across the state. “While the DeSantis Administration has said that AP African American Studies’significantly lacks instructional merit,’ New Jersey will support teaching our complete history,” said Phil Murphy in a statement.
This year, the course debuted in 60 schools throughout the country as part of a two-year pilot phase — a very contentious chapter due to Florida’s war on the course over its so-called “woke indoctrination” — and will grow in schools across the country over the next few years.
During a Tuesday visit to a high school in Newark, Murphy stated that DeSantis prioritises “cultural warfare” over education. The College Board criticised Florida earlier this week for its dishonest presentation of the class and its efforts to weaponize politics against the education organisation.
