A Battle Reconsidered: Second Thoughts on Book Censorship and Conservative Parents
Kauer, Suzanne M.
English Journal, v97 n3 p56-60 Jan 2008
Suzanne M. Kauer believes we must honor all voices in the discussion of what books students should read; she refuses to simplify the issue of censorship by dismissing the multifaceted concerns parents have for saying no to certain books. Kauer advocates doing more listening--asking parents questions to better understand their perspectives--and thinking about and articulating our reasons for what literature we deem important to teach.
