The Virginia mother who made headlines for exposing what she said is pedophilia and pornography in her son’s high school library books is reportedly banned from entering the school’s library.
The mother, Stacy Langton, castigated the Fairfax County Public Schools in September for permitting what she said amounted to explicit pornographic and pedophilic materials in the school’s library, including graphic imagery and dialogue depicting sex between adult men and teenagers.
Board members, however, cut off Langton during her speech before her time expired, and she was unable to finish her remarks demanding answers and accountability for the presence of such materials. In remarks, board members ironically shamed Langton for reading passages of the books in the presence of children.
What are the details?
The Washington Examiner reported Monday that Fairfax High School acting principal Maureen Keck told Stacy Langton that she was not permitted to enter the public school’s library after having checked out a book with her son earlier in the week.
Langton told the outlet that Keck phoned her to inform her that she would not be permitted to enter the library due to a “school policy.”
When Langton pressed Keck about the policy, the acting principal said that the ban applied to all parents.
“[Keck] told me that no parents were allowed into the library,” Langton told the outlet. “So I asked her to send me the specific policy so I could see it for myself.”
According to the report, Langton said that she entered the school library earlier in the week with her son in order to check out a book and that the librarian never mentioned any policy about parents not being permitted in the room. The librarian, according to Langton, even helped her and her son locate the book they were seeking.
In response to Langton’s inquiry, Keck sent a copy of a policy, the Examiner reported, that made “no mention of restricting visitor access to parts of campus anywhere” — including the library — provided visitors sign in and obtain a visitor pass.
“Langton said that while she signed in, the machine that provides visitor passes was out of order and had been for weeks,” the outlet reported.
A spokesperson for the district declined to comment on the allegations on Monday.
Langton told the outlet that she plans to address the school board at its Thursday meeting.
In October, the Fairfax County Times reported that at least two books Langton mentioned in her fiery remarks were pulled from school circulation pending a review of the materials.
