Gov. DeSantis says Florida students have alternatives to Advanced Placement courses

Gov. Ron DeSantis continues to outline a path away from the College Board’s products in the wake of a dispute over an African American Studies Advanced Placement course proposal.

“I don’t think anyone should be concerned about our high school students not having opportunity for that. They absolutely will. And it’s just a matter of what’s the best way to do it,” he said in Jacksonville.

DeSantis contended there are other ways for high school students to get college credit that circumvent the College Board offerings, suggesting that discontinuing AP classes wouldn’t present an insurmountable burden for students given the panoply of other options.
