Stacy Langton, a concerned mother from Virginia, has recently been barred from entering the library at her son’s public high school. The ban emerges after she openly addressed the school board about her concerns regarding pornographic books present in the school library.
After Langton checked out a book with her son during the school week, Acting Principal Maureen Keck recently informed Langton that she no longer had permission to enter the library of Fairfax High School.
In remarks made to the Washington Examiner, Langton stated that Keck informed her directly that she could no longer enter the library. When Langton requested why she was suddenly banned from entry, Keck claimed that banning parents from the library was a school policy which purportedly applies to all parents.
When Langton heard that “no parents were allowed into the library,” she directly requested the specific wording of the formal policy so that she could view it for herself.
Earlier last week, Langton entered the library of Fairfax High School with her son to check out a book. During her time in the library, Langton was not informed by the school librarian about any policy regarding a ban on parents.
On the contrary, the school librarian warmly provided assistance to both Langton and her son as they looked for a particular book.
However, on the following day, Keck phoned Langton and brusquely informed her that she was no longer permitted to enter the school library.
After Langton requested to see the school’s specific policy, she received a document from Keck that was subsequently reviewed by the Washington Examiner. The document does not make any reference to banning parents from entering the school library.
Moreover, the document also does not make any reference to banning or restricting visitors in other parts of the school campus. Individuals interested in visiting the school merely need to sign in at the front entrance and acquire a visitor pass, and then they may freely enter, per the school’s own policy.
Ironically, Langton observed that the machine that prints visitor passes had not been functioning, and it has apparently been out of order for multiple weeks.
Langton attracted national attention in October when she became a major fixture of Virginia Governor Elect Glenn Youngkin’s campaign ads. The campaign ads featured Langton speaking directly to the school board in Fairfax County on September 23, demanding a clear explanation for why pornographic material was present in the school library.
One of the more graphic works of literature featured sexual relations between teenagers and adult men.
While the school board provides up to two minutes for community members to speak, Langton was abruptly cut off before her allotted time.
Spokespeople for Fairfax County Public Schools have declined to comment on the findings of the Washington Examiner.
Langton remains determined to stay involved in her her son’s education, and she intends to speak at another school board meeting on Thursday in order to finish what she had attempted to state back in September.
“I still have no accountability,” Langton proclaimed.
Last month, the Fairfax Times noted that two of the pornographic books Langton drew attention to have been subsequently suspended from circulation. Currently, the two books remain under review, as a committee will determine whether the books should remain or face permanent removal.
