Censorship Now: Revisiting "The Students' Right to Read." A Policy Research Brief
National Council of Teachers of English
"The Students' Right to Read," published in 1961, revised in 1981, and reaffirmed by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) Executive Committee in 2012, responds to censorship or attempts to restrict or deny students access to materials deemed objectionable by some individual or group. Despite this position statement and the continuing efforts of NCTE's Anti-Censorship Center, censorship continues in the classrooms of many English language arts teachers, and recently it has taken new and less obvious forms. This Policy Research Brief discusses the various dimensions and implications of censorship and provides policy recommendations.
