Meet The Students Challenging Book Bans

Meet The Students Challenging Book Bans

We are revisiting the public school culture wars – this time, from the perspective of students. What have we learned from the kids who are fighting against book bans? How has the war over books sparked a backlash to the so-called parents’ rights movement?  

We call up two busy teen activists – Da’Taeveyon Daniels in Texas and Eliza Lane in Florida – to find out. And CNN correspondent Elle Reeve (, who covers how extremism percolates into everyday life, puts the board room debates ( over what kids should and shouldn’t read into a national context.  

To hear from the perspective of two concerned parents, check out our very first episode “Meet The Parents Taking Over School Boards,” ( we released one year ago today.
