Moms for Liberty address issue with a book in front of Pierre School Board

PIERRE, S.D.(KCCR)- A newly-formed parents group is taking issue with a book they believe is too graphic for students in the Pierre School District.  Julie Muldoon is vice chair of the Hughes County chapter of “Moms for Liberty.”  She says the group isn’t opposed to 10th grade students having to read  “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian” She’s requested three changes from the District.

Muldoon says if students are expected to read a book with graphic content parents should know about it.

Pierre School Board president Dan Cronin says the Board supports the District’s administration.

Moms for Liberty used the Pierre School Board meeting public comment period last month to address what they believe are concerns with the District’s state report card results.
