Salina high schools to keep book challenged by parents

KMIZ

SALINA, Kan. (AP) — Salina Public Schools will not remove a book that was challenged by some parents. Three parents objected at a Feb. 8 school board meeting to the book “All Boys Aren’t Blue,” which was acquired by Salina’s South and Central high schools. The book is a series of essays by a Black and gay man. A review committee acknowledged the book contains sexual scenes that some might find disturbing but said it had merit as a literary work. The committee also found that the district’s policies were followed when the book was chosen for the high schools.
