Also removed from the cirriculum were teachings on the Black Lives Matter movement, and writers linked to Black feminism and queer rights.

LGBT Floridians have been a particular target of DeSantis, who began targeting Disney after it voiced objections to Florida's Don't Say Gay law.

He adds that "We're talking about basic Christianity".
