A Glimpse At First Amendement Issues in School Libraries

UCLA law professor and freedom of speech scholar Eugene Volokh recently posted at his legal group blog, the Volokh Conspiracy, a post about a school libraries matter. The post, What May a School Board Do When It Concludes an Elementary School Library Book Omits Important Information?, takes a look at a recent case in the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. An opinion has been released in the matter.


Well then what about all those wonderful history books that omit the Genocide of the Native Americans? Or is that different because it happened here in the u.s.?

There was no genocide of the native americans. A war is not genocide. We fought and they fought back. That is a war.

They may stop micromanaging the school libraries.

They won't but they may.
