TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD Removed

 Banned Books Week may be over, but the fight against censorship continues.  Last week, a school district in Biloxi, MS removed To Kill a Mockingbird from its junior-high reading list.

Kenny Holloway, district vice president, says that, “There were complaints about it. There is some language in the book that makes people uncomfortable, and we can teach the same lesson with other books. It’s still in our library. But they’re going to use another book in the 8th grade course.”  The school district asserts that the book’s lessons on compassion and empathy can be found in other, less offensive books.
