Alice Moore and the Kanawha County Textbook Controversy.
Kincheloe, Joe
Journal of Thought, v15 n1 p21-34 Spr 1980
The author considers the 1974 Kanawha County textbook censorship controversy as an attempt by fundamentalist parents to banish "alien" moral influences from the schools and to strengthen community control over learning. He focuses on the role and views of school board member Alice Moore, a leading spokesperson of the fundamentalists. (SJL)
