Some parents in a Virginia county are upset about a few books on public school summer reading lists – so much so that they’re calling for censorship.
The Virginia legislature has voted to approve a bill that would allow parents to block certain material in public schools. The bill would require schools to notify parents that an assigned book contained potentially objectionable sexual content.
When I was kid, the phrase “Banned in Boston” confused me. I thought of Boston as a liberal, cosmopolitan city. Surely they didn’t censor things there.
