Joan Cullen, President of Pennridge School District, returns to the Dom Giordano Program to discuss the aforementioned story, an upcoming vote by the Central Bucks School District to either ban or allow ‘sexualized content’ in library books. In a piece written about the story, the Inquirer spoke with multiple officials who wrongly tried spinning the policy into something targeting books like The Scarlet Letter, while Cullen and Giordano tell the types of books that this does look to disallow. Then, Cullen and Giordano explain why school districts and parents have taken notice of certain books, with Cullen pointing toward a recent rise in hyper-political and questionable content being put out by children’s book publishers.
