Elmbrook Schools - Sexually Explicit Books for Young Children

From M.D. Kittle, Empower Wisconsin:
Elmbrook Schools could face a lawsuit for its online library of “sexually explicit” materials that a district parent says are offered to children as young as 3rd grade.

The controversial content reportedly includes a book explaining how sex apps work and a publication featuring full-body nude illustrations of a young boy engaged in masturbation.

The school board’s president and vice president have since issued a statement insisting that the content has never been available to elementary school students, but they acknowledge middle schoolers have had access to the books.

On Tuesday, the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL) issued a demand letter to Elmbrook Schools urging administrators remove the sexually explicit materials available through the district’s online library. The Milwaukee-based civil rights law firm, which is representing a group of concerned parents, claims Elmbrook is violating parents’ constitutional rights.

Recently, the parent of a 16-year-old Elmbrook student used that student’s school-issued Chromebook to access Sora, a school-sponsored app that makes available Elmbrook’s ebook and audiobook collection to students “for all levels – preschool to adult,” according to WILL. The parent confirmed access to sexually explicit material.

...As the Daily Wire reported Tuesday, the offerings include a book that describes traditional views on marriage as “ignorant.” The publication reported that children as young as 8 can access a publication titled, “This Book Is Gay,” which offers a how-to on using Grindr and other sex apps.

Another book, “Queer: The Ultimate LGBT Guide for Teens,” offers students an in-depth analysis of anal sex, oral sex, one-night stands, and “vaginal sex with dildos.”
This is outrageous.

Parents should be concerned about the sexually explicit material Elmbrook is offering their young children.
