Chris Christie Criticizes Florida Governor DeSantis Over New Educational Standards on African American History

The Florida Board of Education recently released a set of educational standards that direct teachers to instruct students about the skills enslaved people developed and the violence perpetrated against and by African Americans. The standards have been met with criticism from both sides of the aisle, with some arguing that they are an attempt to downplay the horrors of slavery and others arguing that they are necessary to provide a more comprehensive understanding of African American history. The debate over the standards is likely to continue as the 2022 law approaches.
