ORLANDO (FLV) – Gov. Ron DeSantis reiterated his stance against pornographic materials in schools after a reporter asked him about Seminole county school leaders confused on what books are or are not allowed Thursday.

“I’d have to see kind of what they’re talking about. But look, guys, this is not rocket science, ok? You do not have pornographic materials in elementary school or middle school, or any,” DeSantis said.

DeSantis Press Secretary Bryan Griffin said the office has received several reporter questions for the governor’s thoughts on various district review decisions of books and class material.

“Let’s focus on educating these kids. Let’s cut out the indoctrination,” DeSantis said. “Let’s not worry about all this stuff that’s inappropriate.”

“A lot of the media, they don’t want to actually describe what’s in some of this stuff. But this is very graphic,” DeSantis said. “Some of it involves pedophilia, unfortunately, in some of the books that have been identified throughout the country, and so that’s just inappropriate.”

School Board Cuts Speaker’s Mic as he Reads ‘Pornography’ Found in School Libraries

Florida’s Voice reported on concerned Floridians finding inappropriate material in Clay County District Schools libraries. The school board cut off the microphone as residents tried to read the book contents. Board members said the material was too inappropriate to be broadcasted.

Ruth Bannon, a concerned resident in the county, brought the book “Tricks” by Elen Hopkins that she found in school libraries. 

“It contains numerous sexual and explicit excerpts involving minors, there are also excerpts containing explicit child rape and abuse, illegal drug use, alcohol consumption, and prostitution of adults and minors,” Bannon said to the board. 

Moms for Liberty in Brevard county challenged dozens of books found in public school libraries that they said included inappropriate material. The group said some of these books detail sexual encounters and include violent rapes. 

A recent Florida law requires school districts to be transparent in the selection of classroom materials, including library and reading materials.
