A California School District Committee Bans ‘The Fault in Our Stars’

“The vote was taken after parent Karen Krueger made her case to the committee and asked its members – teachers, parents, a principal, librarian and instructional services specialist – to remove the book or make it available for checkout only with parental consent. Krueger said she didn’t want to ‘come off as a prude’ or block anyone’s freedom to read. But she questioned whether the book should be available at the middle school library because the subject matter involves teens dying of cancer who use crude language and have sex.” (The Press Enterprise)
