MiamiHerald.com: Continuing its efforts to remove a controversial children's book, the Miami-Dade School Board voted this afternoon to appeal a federal judge's ruling that forced the district to keep Vamos a Cuba and 23 other titles on school library shelves.
In a 5-2 decision, with two members absent, the board said it wanted to protect the right of the district to determine the content of school libraries, rather than leave it up to a judge.
''Do we have a right to protect our children?'' said board member Frank Bolaos, who joined Agustn Barrera, Perla Tabares Hantman, Ana Rivas Logan and Marta Perez in voting for the appeal. ``I think we have the right and responsibility to do that.''"
