Public Schools Are Missing This: ‘Libraries that inspire kids’ to love liberty and our country, and learn classical economics
I’m not sure if you saw the recent uproar in Dearborn, Michigan, where parents crashed a school board meeting to demand that objectionable books were removed from the library.
The big story behind it all was that Christian parents and Muslim parents had united to demand removal of certain books from their public school library.
When I saw it, I couldn’t help but ask a slightly different question: Who will speak up for which books should be in public school libraries? (emphasis added)
I’m glad that parents have freedom of speech to protest this — it’s one of the best things about our country. And public school libraries matter. It’s where kids go to pick books off the shelves that influence them at an early age.
That’s why I’m concerned about putting books in libraries. If all we do is remove books from libraries, they’ll eventually be empty.
But I want to put books into libraries that inspire kids to love liberty, learn more about our amazing country, and learn about classical economics and how the government should work.
A few years ago, these books didn’t exist, so I wrote them.
Now, the ‘Tuttle Twins’ books have sold millions of copies. But they are largely nonexistent in public school libraries, where so many kids look for their next read.
I’d like to get a set of Tuttle Twins books in every public school library in America. And my friends at Moms for Liberty have stepped up to hand deliver them.
Would you like to see a set of Tuttle Twins books in a library near you?
