The Tuscaloosa County school board has grudgingly allowed the novel Sandpiper to stay in the Brookwood High School library despite a teen's protest against it and the board's own dislike for its material.
"It disappoints us that the decisions of the courts have taken away this local Board of Education's ability to make decisions that protect these very same school children," Whitehead said. "Based upon legal counsel, we therefore have reluctantly decided to take no action."
