TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Florida has reversed its decision to “effectively” banned AP Psychology from being taught in schools on Friday.
Florida Commissioner of Education Manny Diaz sent a letter to superintendents explaining that the Department of Education is not “discouraging” districts from teaching AP Psychology.
After Florida originally issued the ban, the College Board suggested that it might withhold the “AP” designation from the course in Florida, which would hurt students.
“This is especially concerning given that the new school year begins in a week,” Diaz wrote. “I want to be clear, AP Psychology is and will remain in the course code directory making it available to Florida students.”
