OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. – Oklahoma’s education leader demands the quick removal of pornographic books in school libraries.

According to the Office of State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister, a social media post revealed the presence of two obscene graphic novels potentially available in Tulsa Public Schools.

Hofmeister made the following remarks following that post:

“This is inappropriate, sexually explicit material. It’s pornography that does not belong in any public school library. We’ve reached out to Tulsa Public Schools and are calling for the books to be removed immediately. All school districts should review and evaluative what will be available in their libraries for the coming school year and remove any inappropriate materials. Parents have the right to review what books are available in their children’s schools, and to direct what their children have access to, so they can have confidence their children are in a safe learning environment.”
