School board bans book from classroom
Language on ‘two moms or two dads’ at issue
ERIE – Some families may have two moms or two dads, but the Erie school board is apparently uncomfortable relating that information to elementary school students.
Last month, the board voted 5-2 to stop using “The Family Book” as part of its curriculum to promote diversity and tolerance.
The book includes a sentence on each page about families: “Some families are big.” “Some families are different colors.” “All families like to hug each other.”
