Tool of the Week: Elmbrook Schools and its sex library

By M.D. Kittle

MADISON — You could say the Elmbrook School District library has a public-relations problem.

Last week, the Daily Wire reported Elmbrook’s online library includes “sexually explicit” materials in its offerings —  to children as young as 8.

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.

Elmbrook School Board’s president and vice president quickly refuted the story, saying the materials aren’t available to 3rd-graders; they’re available to 6th-graders.

Here’s what the kids are reading, according to the Daily Wire.

 “This Book Is Gay,” which offers a how-to on using Grindr and other sex apps.

“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.”

“What I have a problem with is that our school district’s curation of this sexually charged content in the online school library trespasses on a parent’s right to draw boundaries around the age, environment, context, and point of view from which this kind of sexual information is exposed, shared, described, interpreted, and understood,” Wendy Dorn, an Elmbrook parent activist told the publication.

Elmbrook School Board President Scott Wheeler and Vice President Jean Lambert in a statement did say officials have suspended circulation of these books in the district’s middle school libraries and on a school-sponsored app that makes available Elmbrook’s ebook and audiobook collection available to students “for all levels – preschool to adult.”

Then they gave a lecture on the “power of books.”

“The power of books allows a reader to walk in someone else’s shoes, cultivate empathy and social and societal awareness. We promote, encourage, and support reading as a path to individual learning and a deeper understanding of the world, but we never assume every book is the right choice for every child or every family,” Wheeler and Lambert added.

It seems like the school board assumed as much before they got caught asleep at the wheel.

Their response to rightly concerned parents could only have been worse if it had come with a voucher for a free showing of the 1979 erotic drama “Caligula” for the middle school history class.

Elmbrook’s Woke library and sleepy school board leadership deservedly earn Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.
