Contributing sentiments towards policy:

51% : "An Advanced Placement course that ignores the decades of science studying sexual orientation and gender identity would deprive students of knowledge they will need to succeed in their studies, in high school and beyond.
49% : The law outlawed instruction on sexual orientation or gender identity in kindergarten through third grade.
47% : "In June, the College Board said it would not alter the popular AP Psychology class after the state asked the organization to review all AP courses to see whether they "need modification to ensure compliance" with a Florida law and state Board of Education rule targeting instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity.
35% : "We are sad to have learned that today the Florida Department of Education has effectively banned AP Psychology in the state by instructing Florida superintendents that teaching foundational content on sexual orientation and gender identity is illegal under state law," the College Board said.
32% : This spring, Florida rejected the College Board’s AP African American Studies class, saying it violated state law because of topics such as Black Lives Matter, Black feminism and reparations.
