Editor: The protests by parents over book diversity in our public-school libraries is nothing new.
My first thought was to express that it is not the school’s job to parent your children. If you are determined that your child not read books that offend you or have too much profanity, then express that to your children. Other students should not have to suffer from being unable to read great literature.
Would you suggest that the libraries pull Shakespeare from the shelves? There are some pretty provocative scenes in William’s plays. We have a diverse population. The books that are introduced into the schools’ libraries are not done gratuitously but from what I understand, with great thought and care.
