New York City’s Public Schools’ inclusion of a woke children’s book on a new reading curriculum has people–rightfully–up in arms
Every time a leftist groomer criticizes Governor DeSantis’s much-needed education reform and oversight, you can show them this.
From the New York Post:
A book intended for 10- and 11-year-olds — which glorifies socialist Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and her far-left “Squad,” knocks religion, and mocks Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell – is being distributed to public school libraries, parents told The Post.
The book, “What You Don’t Know: A Story of Liberated Childhood,” was written and illustrated by Brooklynite Anastasia Higginbotham and appears on a fifth-grade independent reading list labeled “Universal Mosaic.” The DOE’s new Mosaic curriculum is supposed to kick off next year.
“What You Don’t Know: A Story of Liberated Childhood,” follows a “gay sixth-grader” as he navigates school and church life, however it is hardly as wholesome as that might at first sound.

Combining religion and politics to slam both the Catholic Church and conservative values, the book takes shots at Jesus, Mitch McConnell, and anyone else who goes against the narrative while also openly praising AOC and her “Squad.”
Parents, and even a school principal, are not happy with the inclusion of the book.
One Staten Island mom said she thought the book was anti-Catholic and that with its mix of religion and politics “has no place in the classroom.”
The woman and another borough mom said the principal at their school, PS 3 in Pleasant Plains, refused to distribute it and that the school’s leadership team was going through other books to determine if they were appropriate.
The politically charged hack author, Higginbotham, also wrote another children’s book about “dismantling white supremacy.” It is clear for anyone to see that this book, books like it, and their inclusion on a reading list for young schoolchildren is part of the greater push by the left to harm and indoctrinate children through the schools.
The Mosaic reading list also includes a book about being transgender geared towards first-graders, and a book blaming white people for racism aimed at kindergartners.
Public schools have no place forcing political and religious messaging–especially not charged attacks–on school children, yet that is precisely what New York City’s public schools are doing.
