K: just another example of GOP corruption... they shout
about the culture wars to hide their vast, widespread corruption....
this is just another example....

From I think Democratic Underground:

" So... Truth is coming out about FL math books... Only one publisher's book will be used...

As DeSantis administration rejects textbooks, only one publisher allowed for K-5 math classes in Florida

Historically, when Florida school districts reevaluate which math instructional materials they will use, they have had more than one publisher to choose from.

Now, the only publisher approved by Gov. Ron DeSantis and the Florida Department of Education for K-5 mathematics is Accelerate Learning, a company out of Houston, Texas.

“In the subject area as large as mathematics for grades K through five, it is unusual for there only to be one publisher to choose from," said Billy Epting, assistant superintendent for academic services for Leon County Schools.

The Carlyle Group, a global investment firm, acquired Accelerate Learning on Dec. 20, 2018, according to the firm's website.

During that time, Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin was the co-CEO of the firm. After 25 years with the company, Youngkin resigned in 2020 to run for office in Virginia.

The first thing Youngkin did as governor of Virginia was sign an executive order to "end the use of inherently divisive concepts, including critical race theory, and restoring excellence in K-12 public education in the commonwealth," a measure that's comparable to DeSantis' "Stop WOKE Act." ... 357965001/

Really... It makes sense. The entire thing is a scam to make money. They sacrifice children to keep people stupid and rake in the bucks off the tax payers.

And nobody in the press will hold their feet to the fire over it. Pretty fucking annoying."

Now if only I could get the other "members of the collection of truth"
to put me on ignore, life would be good..
