From the Billings Gazette:
A mother upset by the selection of a young-adult novel that deals frankly with life on an American Indian reservation is asking School District 2 for a second time to remove the novel from its required reading list.
The book, Sherman Alexie’s “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian,” winner of the 2007 National Book Award, is on the list of required reading for sophomore English classes in SD2 and is taught in some classrooms.
A committee of SD2 trustees will discuss the book and its place in the classroom during a special meeting at 6 p.m. on Monday in the Lincoln Center board room.
This is one of the few articles about challenges that actually includes a copy of the Request For Reconsideration form, so it's worth clicking through to see it.
Other than that, it's pretty much same old, same old.
