The poem that was read by poet Amanda Gorman at President Joe Biden's inauguration has been banned from an elementary school in Miami-Dade County, Florida after the objections of just one parent.

The Miami Herald reports that the poem, which is titled "The Hills We Climb," was removed from the K-5 curriculum after local parent Daily Salinas challenged it as inappropriate for students. A district spokesperson told the Herald it would "impact one school."

In addition to Gorman's poem, Salinas also challenged four other books: The ABCs of Black History, Cuban Kids, Countries in the News Cuba, and Love to Langston for what she claimed were filled with "indirect hate messages" inspired by critical race theory.

Salinas tells the Miami Herald that she's not in favor of censorship but she instead wants students to "know the truth" about Cuba with accurate reading materials.

That said, she also complained that the district had left the books she objected to available for middle school students, as she claimed they were inappropriate for all ages.

Stephana Ferrell, the director of research and insight at Florida Freedom to Read Project, said that the nature of the books being challenged in the county show that there's a concerted effort to target "books that address ethnicities, marginalized communities, racism or our history of racism."
