By complying with Human Rights Campaign’s controversial demands, Scholastic Corporation (Scholastic) increases the risk of dividing employees, alienating customers and harming shareholders. The company covers transgender-related medical costs for its employees and their children. It also uses sex and gender ideology criteria in vendor selection, marketing, and philanthropic support. Scholastic uses its reputation, corporate funds, and political influence to support controversial sex and gender ideologies, organizations, and legislation. Scholastic frequently promotes gender ideology and DE&I in the books it publishes for children. Scholastic has released letters in support of the LGBTQ community and BLM movement, encouraging children to participate in BLM protests. The company has also donated books to Pride and Less Prejudice and LGBTQ organizations that support LGBTQ youth. Scholastic was prevented from advertising certain children's books on Facebook because of their explicit material. For these reasons, Scholastic receives a High Risk rating.
