Floritestsda's right wing alternative to SAT

Students applying to Florida's state universities will now be able to submit exam scores from a conservative and Christian-backed alternative to the SAT and ACT, known as the Classic Learning Test.

The CLT is most commonly taken by students who are in private schools or home-schooled. Over 200 colleges currently accept the test, many of which are small, private or faith-based. The test was launched in 2015.

On Friday, the governing board for Florida's state university system approved the exam for undergraduate admissions — making Florida the first state in the country to accept the CLT on a wide scale.

It's the latest change pushed by Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has set out to overhaul the state's schools and fight against what he calls "woke indoctrination."
