Bible among challenged books school district is reviewing for removal

CNN published this video item, entitled “Bible among challenged books school district is reviewing for removal” – below is their description.

Officials in a school district near Fort Worth, Texas, have directed school staff and librarians to temporarily remove books challenged through the district’s formal complaint process in the past school year, including the Bible and an illustrated adaptation of Anne Frank’s diary.

The Keller Independent School District Board of Trustees adopted policies last week that set new standards for how books and other instructional materials become selected for schools. The policy includes putting books up for 30 days of public review before they are purchased by libraries and removing challenged materials from shelves while they are under review. #cnntonight #AlisynCamerota #CNN
