Remove homosexual content from our elementary public school libraries
- The Children's Picture book "And Tango Makes Three" containing homosexual content
- United States of America
We are concerned that the school is putting some content in front of our children that is contrary to our beliefs and usurps the families role of training our children in these morals and beliefs.
The content in question holds no bearing on education and is not needed to advance our children in their knowledge.
You can read more about the book "And Tango Makes Three" and the controversy around it by going to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/And_Tango_Makes_Three
This subject matter should be explained through the families and not through a book. This is a moral issue and should be the family of the child to guide the child not a book. To make light of this moral issue by keeping books like this in the school library is to usurp the role of family in the life of a child.
The presence of the book is not necessary for the educational development of the child and does not reflect literature in a positive manner. Currently this book is in all of the elementary school libraries in Rochester, MN. and is on Time Magazines top 10 most controversial books and has been legally challenged in communities all over the country.
