    Isn't it amazing what some people consider to be a sound reason to censor
    a book? I have found through my nine years of teaching that I have gone
    from being completely open minded to now being open minded but very
    cautious. I think those of us who go into education know what is out
    there in the world, want to help our students explore while providing
    guidance, but there are those who want to shelter their children from the
    harsh realities of life. Like my 9th graders always mention when we have
    talked about why I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou is often
    banned, they can't believe it since worse things are said and seen on TV
    every single day. There will always be opposing viewpoints on all aspects
    of life, I suppose. . .

    Has anyone else had to deal with book controversies within your own
    curriculum?
    Cheryl
