A Virginia mom fighting back against pornographic material in public schools says she was told by a high school principal in Fairfax County that parents are not allowed in the district’s libraries.
Stacy Langton told the Washington Examiner Monday that Fairfax Principal Maureen Keck is barring parents from their kids libraries after she checked out “All Boys Aren’t Blue,” one of several books she says contain child pornography and pedophilia.
“I was like, ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a minute,” Langton told the Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF). “Could you please repeat that for me slowly, because I want to make sure I heard you correctly.”
Author and parental-rights activist Elizabeth Johnston says this is unconscionable and must be resisted by parents on every level.
“I find it highly disturbing that parents pay the taxes that fund public school libraries, but now that parents have found pornography in said libraries, schools don’t want to provide any accountability to those parents,” Johnston told ToddStarnes.com.
DCNF reports the rule was not specific to Langton and that all parents were prohibited from checking out school library books. Langton says that was news to her.
“At no time did the librarian say, ‘Hey, you’re not supposed to be in here’ or ‘We don’t allow parents in the library,” Langton told DCNF. “The librarian knows who I am, she knows I’m my son’s mother, and we checked out that book because you can do that.”
“Parents must be allowed to know what is being taught, distributed and made available to their own children,” says Johnston. “This is exactly why we were forced to organize the grassroots protest called Sex Ed Sit Out, to educate parents concerning the obscenity that sits undetected under their noses in public schools.”
As organizer of Sex Ed Sit Out, Johnston says she is encouraged to see parents in Fairfax County getting off the sidelines and demanding accountability from public schools.
In September, Langton confronted the school board over books in the school library, including “Lawn Boy” by Jonathan Evison and “Gender Queer” by Maia Kobabe.
