‘Forever’ banned from PISD libraries

twistedlibrarian writes “Pasadena Independent School District superintendent Dr. Rick Schneider has banned the book “Forever” by popular children’s author Judy Blume from the shelves of libraries within the district.
The book had previously been found in the collections of one intermediate and three high schools.

“It is never an easy decision to pull a book from the shelves. The superintendent has the responsibility to put materials in the system that are educationally suitable and appropriate. In this particular case, after reading the book, he felt that, though the theme is not unsuitable certain passages are and decided to remove the book,” said district spokesperson Kirk Lewis.
