NYC Principle Opposes a Parent and Defends the Sexualization of Children
January 10, 2023
A concerned parent emailed a NYC Middle School Principal, Elana Elster, regarding whether or not the sexually explicit book This Book is Gay was in the library. The principal went on to say that the book was in the library, was going to remain there, and then questioned the parent’s motives.
"When you say you are ‘at war everyday,’ I am wondering if you are referring to the exposure your child is getting to people and ideas that are new and different. This is a public school and the children will be continuously exposed. It doesn't mean that they will have to agree with everything they are learning or seeing. In fact, they will be taught to question, analyze, expand their horizons," the e-mail continues.
