Pay attention, Class! The books ARE salacious!

 By Ginny Bryce

Recently, the Conejo Valley Unified School District (CVUSD) board approved a new book selection and opt-out policy. They called it “Selection and Evaluation of Instructional Materials.”

The book policy that was initially passed by the previous board “ensured that parents knew what books their kids were reading in school, and let them know they had the right to opt-out of those books if they chose. But the new Board majority does not like that policy and is moving to get it reversed.”

Conejo Valley Unified School District in Thousand Oaks is facing a revolt of parents who do not want their children to be forced to read books that sexually exploit their children.

The purpose of school is to educate our children, and this education also comes from books that are required or assigned.  What does the school district want to teach these children?

What lessons for life are learned by our children in reading “The Bluest Eye” by Toni Morrison and Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson?

Would you want your child or grandchild to learn how to rape their child when they get older? (The Bluest Eye),

Do you want your daughter or granddaughter to think that is what fathers do? (The Bluest Eye)

How is the information of reading about a girl feeling the private parts of a boy – to help children in the future? (Snow Falling on Cedars)       

California schools were rated 10th from the bottom among the 50 states and Washington DC in recent rating. Nearly across the board in multiple categories graded by the magazine Education Week, California scored below the national average.

California ranked 41st in conditions that help children succeed, 39th in school finance, and 30th in achievement. 

Do you think these books will help the children bring up the averages of California Schools?  IF SO HOW?

Harvey Weinstein and more than 150 prominent people have been accused in the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment.

Let’s not train a new generation of #MeToo offenders through these salacious books!
