BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. —The Brevard County School District has pulled a book from its libraries that it calls “inappropriate.”
The book is called “Gender Queer: A Memoir” and school officials say it’s a graphic novel that “depicts adult images that have no place in education.”
“BPS staff immediately agreed that this book violates our guidelines and that it has no place in our school district. I have directed staff to ensure there are no other similar books in our libraries,” said BPS Superintendent Dr. Mark Mullins. “I want to remind families that each school’s library books can be reviewed online. I encourage parents to review the content that is available to students.”
Officials say the book has been flagged so it cannot be purchased again and the entire library catalogue will be reviewed to ensure there are no other inappropriate books.
