ACLU challenges Cleveland Heights-University Heights schools over removal of magazine from library – Metro – cleveland.com

The Cleveland Plain Dealer on March 23, 2009 reports a dispute in Cleveland Heights-University Heights over the removal of a magazine at the library.  According to the ACLU’s Christine Link: “Literature should not be removed from a school library simply because one person may find it inappropriate.  Ms. Link called for the board to “immediately order that the magazine be reinstated.”  The literature: Nitendo Magazine.  The principal’s objection.  Violence on the cover.  The librarian objected because the principal did not follow the rules — object, take it to the School Board for a determination.  I found this entirely amusing.  I also find it delightful that we are arguing over a Nitendo Magazine, and not Huck Fin, Tropic of Cancer, etc.
