In The Iowa Standard’s research on how sexually explicit, perverted, disturbing books are ending up in school libraries across Iowa, one company’s name keeps popping up — Follett School Solutions.

We have called the company more than a half dozen times. We’ve left just as many messages. We’ve talked with a sales representative. We’ve emailed the media contact.

Nobody at the company is willing to answer basic questions.

Questions like what the process looks like when a new school opens and thousands of titles are ordered at once. Or if the company suggests titles. Or if the school requests certain titles. Or if the company suggests books with a certain theme. Or if the school requests books with a certain theme.

Just who is responsible for books promoting pedophilia, incest and gender confusion ending up in the school libraries funded by Iowa taxpayers?

Well, Follett isn’t talking. At least to us. Perhaps they will talk to you.

It is easy for a company to ignore one person from one media outlet. It doesn’t appear other media outlets in Iowa care too much about Iowa kids being subjected to this new level of perversion.

Thankfully readers of The Iowa Standard are sane. You care. You want answers. You want to protect kids, not pervert them. Care for them, not corrupt them.

So, here is what you can do. Contact Follett School Solutions and demand answers. Encourage others to do so. Call them every day. Every hour if you have the time. Make sure you record it in case they actually answer these questions.

Follett School Solutions can be reached at:

877-899-8550 (sales)
888-511-5114 (support) — This is the number we’ve tried over and over and over again

You can also attempt to email them at [email protected]

If Follett continues to refuse to answer these basic questions, perhaps it will be time for school districts across Iowa to cut ties with the company. Iowans will have to reach out to their school board members encouraging them to do so.

Or, perhaps this is a topic for the House Government Oversight Committee or Senate Government Oversight Committee to hold hearings about. And perhaps they should use their legal ability to require Follett answer these questions and show up at a hearing.

Regardless, Iowans deserve answers.
