Dear School Boards of America: Have a Backbone. Also, Read Books. via Book Riot

Book Riot contributor Jill Guccini wrote a scathing opinion piece about school board censorship. You should read it. Here’s a little snippet…

“Politicians can keep passing laws that hurt women, that hurt people of color, that hurt poor people, and say that they’re necessary to protect our freedoms. But we’re not idiots. We know who they’re protecting. School boards can keep banning books that are about LGBTQ people, that are about people of color, that are about real-life hurt and oppression, and say that it’s because of a few naughty words. But kids aren’t idiots. They know what you’re actually censoring.”
