Norwood Colorado school books banned, destroyed
A Report out of Colorado says a group of parents destroyed about two dozen copies of "Bless Me, Ultima," a novel selected for a Norwood High School English class. Norwood School Superintendent Bob Conder confiscated the books and released them to parents to be burned or otherwise purged.
"The book should be judged in its entirety. There is some strong language in strong situations, but there is no flippant use of profanity," said Anaya. "Parents have the right to monitor what their children read, however they do not have the right to tell others what they can read. That is un-American, un-democratic and un-educational."
