Pro Tem Treat Calls on TPS Superintendent to remove books
OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma Senate President Pro Tempore Greg Treat today released the following statement after it was discovered that sexually graphic books were available in several Tulsa Public School libraries, available to children in the district.
"What has been discovered in the Tulsa Public Schools library is appalling and nothing short of deplorable. It is indefensible to have children exposed to images and material that is the definition of pornography. It makes no difference whether it’s same sex, opposing sex or anything in between, children should never be able to view these images in a public school sanctioned library book. It doesn’t matter who authorized these books to be admitted in the library- I am calling on the Tulsa public school superintendent Deborah Gist to do the right thing by taking action by removing these books immediately.” - Oklahoma Senate Pro Tempore Greg Treat
