A Virginia mother noticed pornographic books in her son’s school library and conversed with the county school, which banned her access to the library weeks after. 

In an interview with the Washington Examiner, Stacy Langton said that acting Principal Maureen Keck had called her last week, informing her that she didn’t have permission to enter the Fairfax High School’s library.

Keck stressed that it was an indiscriminate school policy applying to all parents. In response to Keck, Langton requested a valid policy, “So, I asked her to send me the specific policy so I could see it for myself.”

Langton also said that she had accompanied her son in his book’s look-up in the school library earlier last week. The school library even offered them assistance on their searching without referring to such a policy.

Keck later sent Langton a school policy, followed her request. According to the Washington Examiner’s policy’s revision, it doesn’t reveal any provisions on limiting the parent access to the library.

The policy doesn’t mention any campus’s parts as confined areas, as long as all visitors hold visitor passes and make their sign-in at the front entrance. Besides, according to Langton, the machine providing passes hadn’t been used for weeks due to malfunction.

Although the school board typically allows two minutes speaking for each chosen community member, they cut off Langton before the expiration’s time at the board meeting on Sept. 23.

The footage recorded Langton questioning the Fairfax County school board over the availability of pornography materials, including depicting sex between adult men and teenagers spread widely. The Virginia mother then appeared as a centerpiece of Virginia Gov.–elect Glenn Youngkin’s campaign ads in October.

Langton told the Washington Examiner about her intention of speaking at the board’s meeting on Thursday, Nov.11, completing what she was prevented from saying in September, “I still have no accountability,” she added. 

The mother also informed she and her family had experienced death threats since she spoke out the truth.

The Fairfax County Public Schools’ spokesperson refused to comment on Monday, Nov. 8.

According to the Fairfax Times, the two mentioned books, Jonathan Evison’s “Lawn Boy” and Maia Kobabe’s “Gender Queer,” were removed from library shelves. Their circulation was suspended last month, pending a review committee’s decision to keep them.
