Wisconsin School Bans MILEY DOLLY DUET

The song “Rainbowland” by Miley Cyrus and Dolly Parton has been banned from schools for being too controversial. 

First-year students in Wisconsin were unable to sing a duet by Miley Cyrus and Dolly Parton encouraging acceptance for the LGBTQ community because school officials felt it “could be perceived as controversial.”

Dolly Parton is unquestionably one of the greatest country music icons of all time. Her voice has the power to move listeners because of the positivity and warmth it conveys. One American school board, however, has decided not to include a duet by Dolly Parton and Miley Cyrus in this year’s spring musical because the lyrics are “too controversial”.

First graders in Wisconsin sing a few songs they’ve learned at the annual spring-summer performance for their families. This year’s event planners have made the bold choice to include a Dolly Parton/Miley Cyrus duet. First graders’ hopes were dashed when the school board decided not to include their favorite song in the musical program.

Administrators excluded “Rainbowland” from the first-grade performance because it was deemed not “appropriate for the age and maturity level of the students,” according to Fox6. This was verified by Superintendent James Sebert, who did not immediately answer a phone on Monday. He also brought up a regulation of the school board that forbids the discussion of sensitive topics in the classroom.

Waukesha‘s equality and diversity efforts were put on hold in 2021 when Sebert banned the display of rainbows and pride flags in the district’s classrooms.


A Wisconsin educator criticized the Waukesha County Board on Twitter for their decision to prohibit the performance of numerous songs with rainbow themes. She tweeted that the administration had denied her request to have her first-grade class perform “Rainbowland” at their spring performance. 

In response, several internet users argued that the administrators’ decision to exclude “Rainbowland” from the schedule was exactly why the show should be included.

Melissa Tempel, a first-grade teacher, said she picked the song because of the universal and endearing nature of its message. Songs like “Here Comes the Sun” by The Beatles and “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong was performed at the class performance with the subject of “The World.”

Tempel said that parents were upset by the decision to remove the music. She was particularly worried about the impact of the prohibition and other district restrictions on children who wanted to exhibit support for the LGBTQ community.

“These confusing messages about rainbows are ultimately creating a culture that seems unsafe towards queer people,” she stated.

Parton and Cyrus‘s representatives did not immediately reply to emails on Monday seeking comment from the musicians on the ban.
