Scholastic’s Cowering Compromise is Still a Loss for Conservatives and Christians

The renowned children’s book publisher, Scholastic, recently released a statement regarding the selection of books offered at its ubiquitous book fairs, a fixture in American elementary schools for decades. Scholastic’s feeble attempt at compromise misses the mark, and here’s why. The well-known children’s book publisher finds itself trapped. On one side, activists demand that young kids be exposed to ideologically charged books.

On the other, laws are cropping up to shield children from this overt indoctrination. Scholastic’s answer? A half-baked collection called “Share Every Story, Celebrate Every Voice” for their U.S. elementary school fairs that bundles all of the Marxist, Feminist, and LGBTQ books into a section that schools can choose to eliminate from their fairs if they like. While some might rush to celebrate this as a win for conservative values, let’s be clear—it’s anything but that. This is just a crumb to appease conservatives, while the real agenda—indoctrinating our nation’s children—goes on unimpeded. It’s kind of like a “heartbeat bill” for abortions”—it’s a way for leftists to compromise without sacrifice.

Let’s cut through the clutter. These activists don’t want to stop at influencing adults—they’re going for our kids, the most impressionable among us. We’re not talking about harmless narratives anymore. Books promoting agendas like homosexuality and transgenderism and pushing narratives of systemic racism aren’t just presenting an alternate viewpoint. Make no mistake, these activists aim to indoctrinate our children into a worldview devoid of sanity and devoid of God. And such loaded topics have no business being in an elementary school.

Scholastic admits their solution isn’t perfect, noting that “the other option would be to not offer these books at all” is “not something we’d consider.” So here’s the kicker, instead of making a hard decision in the best interest of our children, they cower. They claim they can’t decide for schools what risks to take. That’s a cop-out. There are times when you have to make tough calls, particularly when it affects the moral fabric of our young ones.

We’re programming a generation to accept what they’re told without question. Kids should be learning the fundamentals of education—not getting a crash course in political correctness, that biology is meaningless, or any other woke ideology. Scholastic’s maneuver might keep some adults in jobs, but let’s not kid ourselves. It’s a dereliction of their duty to protect children from material blatantly opposing a conservative, biblical worldview.

Yes, some areas can opt out of these books, often thanks to legislation or the discretion of Christian schools. But here’s where the rubber meets the road, these controversial books should never see the light of day in any school environment. They should all be burned. Period.

This isn’t a victory for conservative values—it’s a footnote in an ongoing struggle. This isn’t a time for complacency or for muted applause. It’s a call for parents and anyone who holds a biblical worldview to see that the fight isn’t just about what kids are reading—it’s about the future direction of our society and the moral grounding of the next generation. Don’t let this so-called compromise fool you—it’s time to be vigilant, now more than ever.
