College Board to Revise AP African American Studies Course Rejected by Florida

The Advanced Placement African American Studies pilot program rejected by the state of Florida because Gov. Ron DeSantis said it was based on “indoctrination” and not “education” is being revised by the College Board.

The College Board, a nonprofit organization that designs and manages AP courses in the United States, said Tuesday it would release the course’s “official framework” Feb. 1, the first day of Black History Month, Florida’s Voice reported.

“Before a new AP course is made broadly available, it is piloted in a small number of high schools to gather feedback from high schools and colleges,” the College Board said, according to Florida’s Voice. “The official course framework incorporates this feedback and defines what students will encounter on the AP Exam for college credit and placement. We are grateful for the contributions of experts, teachers, and students and look forward to sharing the framework broadly.”
