You're Teaching Our Children What?

Scholastic Book Club ‘Outs’ themselves as LGBTQ Propaganda Machine

Many schools in Australia allow Scholastic Book Club into their schools under the guise of nurturing a love of reading, as well as fundraising for the school. Most would not know that many of their books feature LGBTQ ideology. The Scholastic Book Club brochures are handed to children at school, before parents have had an opportunity to see it, or even to decide whether the book their child has already set their heart on is suitable, or contains propaganda.

One June 2, Scholastic Book Club posted this on their Facebook Page:

Happy Pride Month! 🏳🌈 Scholastic Book Clubs is proud to celebrate with books that feature LGBTQIA+ characters. We hope that you Read With Pride all month long!

They followed up with this comment:

Does your school have Scholastic Book Club? Maybe it’s time to invest in a book club that’s dedicated to celebrating a love of reading, rather than an ideology.
