People want to make it about this transgender issue… We have a couple of transgender kids in our high school and our staff do a great job of handling that… We have to have those conversations as we move forward, and we’ll get better at it. We’re happy to have it. All I have is the four of those administrators that said, this is not appropriate for children of this age.

We don’t feel that it’s an age appropriate book for a variety of reasons and more so than the transgender aspect, when they talk about dirty magazines and use the word porn… For incoming third graders that could be as young as seven-years-old, that’s really the inappropriate aspect of that book. A lot of them will be curious and then go try to look that word up and we all know what can happen on the internet when you type in that.
