Amanda Gorman responds to Florida school restricting her poem "The Hill We Climb"

The acclaimed poem written by Amanda Gorman for President Joe Biden’s inauguration was moved from the elementary section of a Miami-Dade County public school after a parent complaint and school review.

The book was removed after a parent falsely claimed that it was published by Oprah Winfrey, is of no educational value, and has indirect hate messages. It's obvious that the parent has not read the book, if they have they have no reading comprehension, or is simply uneducated.

Amanda Gorman has responded to her book being removed. Read her response below.
