More and more books are being pulled off school shelves across America thanks to parent advocacy groups who say they are inappropriate for children. Some educators are decrying this trend, however, calling the crackdown on certain literature as harmful censorship.
On the FOX News Rundown this week, host Lisa Brady took a deep dive into this debate by speaking with Moms For Liberty Co-Founder Tina Descovich and the Director of The American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom Deborah Caldwell-Stone.
Descovich detailed why she believes some books must be banned to protect children from inappropriate content for their age group and her belief parents must reclaim their rights in their children’s education
Deborah Caldwell-Stone explained why removing questionable books can be dangerous and could hurt marginalized students.
The two also discussed potential compromises and the importance of parents being involved in their children’s education.
Due to time limitations, we could not include all of the conversations in our original segment. On the FOX News Rundown Extra, you will hear our complete conversations with both Moms For Liberty Co-Founder Tina Descovich and the Director of The American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom Deborah Caldwell-Stone.
