When given the option, parents don't want to restrict their children's reading

Despite the breathless claims from a handful of extreme activists that parents want to restrict student library access, in Florida, the numbers tell a WILDLY different story. As students go back to school, a host of new regulations in Florida will change the access they have to books in their classrooms and libraries. That means that parents have the ability to opt-out of reading material. Yet, for all of the hysteria of book banners, you'd think that more than 1% of parents would opt-out. That's just not the case and these reading regulations are costing taxpayers millions of dollars.
