TX School District Bans the Bible
After attempting to ban pornographic books from school libraries, one TX school district has banned the Bible and The Diary of Anne Frank.
From The Daily Wire. All versions of the Bible and an illustrated version of Anne Frank’s diary were among the “challenged” books that were pulled from shelves across Keller Independent School District in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in Texas.
The move came after Texas education officials began an investigation last December into claims that the district did not properly evaluate the books that had made their way into classrooms and school libraries…
But according to a new report, even after a number of books were “challenged” and then approved by parents and staff, the district abruptly announced plans to pull all of the books that had been “challenged” throughout the course of the investigation — including some that had made it through the approval process.
Jennifer Price, the district’s curriculum director, sent an email Tuesday to all Keller principals along with a list of the offending titles. “By the end of today, I need all books pulled from the library and classrooms,” she wrote, reported The Dallas Morning News….
Among the “challenged” tomes were all versions and translations of the Bible — which is described as being authored by “men who lived a long time ago — no 1 exact author exist [sic] for these books” — and “Anne Frank’s Diary (The Graphic Adaption)” by Ari Folman and David Polonsky….
