Soon after a critique of Scholastic's catalogue for being as white as the Oscars, Scholastic launched it's "diverse books" catalog. That provided window dressing, not a solution, to their collection which continues to contribute to a distorted view of the United States.
It was recently revealed that Scholastic was offering schools the chance to opt out of the diverse bookcase for their popular school book fairs.
Given the dangerous and increasing levels of racism and homophobia in the United States, Scholastic should emphasize people of color and LGBTQ+ identity in ALL of its publishing and collections.
Sadly, this is not the only example of Scholastic prioritizing profits over educational integrity. While they publish many books that we value, their marketing and communications divisions are as guilty of censorship and misinformation as the people banning books.
