Psychoanalyzing the governor strictly prohibited.
Okay, now he's fucking with suburban middle class parents. When will enough be enough?
Seems like every new rightwing policy is written as deliberately vague so as the confuse people into indecision and make it harder for them to know if they’re even capable of complying with it.
"Our teachers have some concerns, but we are going to take the commissioner of education's word when he says Advanced Placement Psychology may be taught in its entirety.”
Well, that one will go down in The Annals of Stupidity.
The "appropriate" qualifier swallows all promises because it is completely subjective.
Meanwhile, the state will be looking for examples to hang, yelping "Look at these groomer libs who abused our trust!"
Any teacher who follows this is a fool.
> "In fact, the Department believes that AP Psychology can be taught in its entirety in a manner that is age and developmentally appropriate and the course remains listed in our course catalog,"
Well there's the lie, right there. "The Department" believes that AP Psych "CAN" be taught in a manner that is age and developmentally appropriate." CAN is the key word there.
I read: You can teach AP Psych and follow our rules both. You can teach a castrated AP Psych and skirt the rules of The Department. One step outta line, though, boyo, and you'll be looking for outside employment faster than you can say "Walter White".
I'll give Tiny D this: he has surrounded himself with sycophants who will do his unholy bidding without a thought.
That AI pic hurts my brain. It looks like people are mounted in the middle of 2 vast tables.
in a manner that is age and developmentally appropriate
what's the standard to determine this anyway because this sounds a tad vague.
I have solution! Move students signed up for AP Psychology to "regular" class, then teach that class at an "advanced" level.
"What's in a name?"
"You see, Jane and Jimmy, whenever Republinazis are taking away your rights by banning speech, education, and your human right to make decisions about your own body, the first thing that you do is give in to them."
Those school administrators are real profiles in courage, FFS.
Flurduh banned sanity decades ago and embraced Republinazis' bug-eyed, tongue-talking, hair-pulling lunacy. They may as well ban psychology, too.
It’s too late for Diaz to be backtracking. The damage is done and will take numerous elections to undo.
Seems Florida is intent on giving Alabama a run for its money.
Fuck Ted Cruz.
Florida is lucky to have any teachers at all...oh, I think I see the point now...
The vagueness is the point. Let's the weasel say, "We didn't tell them they couldn't teach it!" in court.
And that might hold up in a Roberts clown court.
Why does Florida even have schools?
Funny how quickly that "It's only K-3!" limitation got expanded to K-12. And by funny, I mean terrifying.
Who the hell elected this Diaz fuckstick to be Grand Education Inquisitor, anyway?
Does the AP psychology class also teach about the disorder that happens to a young naval officer when he's at his first port of call -- let's say it's in Naples, just as an example -- and has a romantic encounter with a lady of the evening who he later finds out does not conform to his rather staid definition of what a woman is, and is so traumatized thereby that he tortured people in Girmo, reportedly with glee, and then runs for political office with the singular purpose of erasing from our culture anything beyond plain vanilla heterosexuality in some vain attempt at feeling like his preconceived notion of what a man is again? I mean, hypothetically?
