As a parent and public librarian, I am strongly opposed to censoring materials in the classroom and in the schools in general. We must trust teachers and school librarians to do the jobs we’ve asked them to do. A well-rounded education means being exposed to experiences we may not experience in our own lives. It also means being exposed to materials that reflect our own experiences and help us feel seen. Our children deserve an education like this— one uncolored by narrow belief systems that don’t reflect their own experiences. Keep sexually explicit materials in schools.
