    Default Good-bye, Classroom Libraries

    Of course we are not a bit surprised at this. If there's anything Fuehrer DeSatan hates, it's books and education.

    Photos of Manatee County classroom libraries have gone viral on social media after a report of the school district asking teachers to remove all unapproved books per a new Florida law. Multiple teachers have posted on social media that they’re upset at having to remove or cover up books in their classrooms. A blogger’s Twitter thread about the issue had 3.4 million views as of Monday afternoon.

    “Farewell, classroom library,” one teacher posted on Facebook. “My heart is broken for Florida students today as I am forced to pack up my classroom library,” another posted. “I will have even more work to do just to make sure my kids have the best education ever,” a third said.

    “They can be charged with a third-degree felony,” said Patricia Barber, the president of the county’s teachers union. “They’ve criminalized providing a book, when there really is just a vague definition of what books are not appropriate.”

    “It’s a very sad day that any citizen can challenge a book and keep another child, whose parents might feel is an appropriate book for their child, from having access to that book,” Barber said. “It’s not just parents. It’s any citizen.”

    So apparently only librarians, or as they're calling them there now, "certified media specialists," are allowed to choose what books a teacher can have in her classroom. They are trained and must be approved by the government. Remind you of any other countries in history? The Soviet Union? North Korea? So much for the Reichwing's desire for "smaller government" and "freedom."

    Looks like when little Billy's daddy Bubba Joe sees him with an illustrated book with a ̶n̶i̶g̶ black character, he can demand that it be removed because he don't want HIS kid reading about no trash, and fire that damn libtard teacher too.

    *sigh*

    Well when a parent cannot read a passage at a school board meeting from a school library you know limits need to be placed on what is in our schools.

    When you have to resort to equating typical grade school books with pornography, you lost whatever shreds of credibility you might have once had. BTW, some might consider this a 12b violation.

    There it is there in a nutshell. It only takes a few teachers with a radical agenda--Left, Right, or whatever--to fuck it over for everybody else.

    As I stated above, any radical agenda, Left, Right, or other, by a few teachers screws it for all the rest. All you have to do is Google "Libs of Tik Tok Teachers" and watch videos of these retards fronting themselves off on social media. Yea, these are Lefties, but I'm sure you can find ones that are on the Right like religious zealots or whatever that are just as bad.

    They are the reason the other 90% of teachers can't have a classroom library...

    https://www.facebook.com/libsoftikto...3611706403100/

    That's a 4th grade teacher... Graphic novels? Those are at best what the movies would rate PG-13 and at worst R-17. Not for 4th graders. This is a teacher that exemplifies why Florida is removing classroom libraries. It only takes one or two bad apples to spoil the rest...
