Censorship. [A Symposium]
Gleason, Marian, Ed.
The Leaflet, v68 n2 p3-47 May 1969
These 12 articles on censorship in the schools comprise a collection of "representative opinions expressed by concerned individuals"--professors, teachers, school administrators, clergy, high school students, a publisher, and a spokesman for the National Education Association. The essays range in viewpoint from a traditional belief in the prerogative of the censor to select and edit materials to the position that censorship should be abolished. Topics include the effect of censorship in the schools, the kinds of literature that teachers should teach, the role of the censor in selecting educational materials, and the social history of free expression.
