So this is happening...
Mary Carney, a school board member from Wisconsin, fears that a children's book featuring the Muppets is "too graphic" for young children will is trying to get the book removed from kindergarten classrooms.
The book is "For Every Child A Better World"
The book teaches global understanding and compassion
Marshfield School Board member Mary Carney objects to the district's use of the book because she feels teaching children about these issues is inappropriate. In her objection, Carney says the book "downplays American exceptionalism" by focusing too much on global affairs. Carney said. "Unfortunately in this world there is a lot of war and strife and poverty; I understand that. I just don't know how appropriate that is to be teaching that." Carney wants it removed from the district's kindergarten social studies curriculum!
Let Mary Carney know that the book's message of compassion, global understanding, and kindness is an important and essential lesson for today's children!
The school board will have the final say; it could remove the book from the kindergarten curriculum, keep the book. You can contact the school board via the district website or Facebook page to voice your concern.
