Apr 20, 2023 1:03 pm

Andrea Macko reports in Porcupine Soup the Greenville Central School District Board of Education will hold a forum May 30 to let parents vent about what books they want banned from the school library. A few parents have been wanting to ban books in the school library, including "All Boys Aren't Blue," a memoir by George M. Johnson about growing up as a queer Black kid in New Jersey. But Kellie Wolf told the school board, “This is not just two or three books… there are like 30 or 40.... I have been doing my research and will get you a final count.” Wolf did not say if she has read those 40 books. Greenville Superintendent of Schools Michael Bennett said, “As educators, it is not our responsibility to ban books, but to offer books that represent viewpoints to which students need to be introduced.” Read more about this story in Porcupine Soup.
