Why Don't They Just Gather the Kiddies And Take Them Out Back to BURN THE BOOK?

Sheesh.  If you read this, you'll see that one sensible judge said, why don't you just put in some MORE BOOKS with varying points of view as a counterbalance?

The 2001 book by Alta Schreier is one of a series on different countries. It contains images of smiling children wearing uniforms of Cuba's communist youth group and celebrating the country's 1959 revolution. In discussing daily life, the book says children work, study and play the same way children in other countries do.

Juan Amador, whose complaint prompted the board to pursue the book's removal, was outraged that the book made no mention of lack of civil liberties, political indoctrination of school children, food rationing or child labour. He said in his complaint to the school board that the book "portrays a life in Cuba that does not exist."

ACLU attorney JoNel Newman had argued at a 2007 hearing that political discussions need not be required for books for elementary students. She questioned whether a book about the Great Wall of China must mention Chinese communist leader Mao Zedong.

I'll bet this gets reversed in a higher court...or what's the point of education?
