Textbook bans and appeals rise again at record high | features


Attempts to ban books from school libraries in America will surge again this school year after hitting historic highs last year, two national reports have found.

The studies, released over the weekend by the American Library Association (known as ALA) and PEN America, a nonprofit dedicated to free speech, both suggest that the number of books being removed from school libraries is increasing is on track to exceed the target of thousands last year. And both numbers are likely gross underestimates.
