Kansas House Obscenity Bill
Some Kansas legislators want to pass House Bill No. 2200 to censor book choices for Kansas teachers. A Kansas parent group Citizens for Literary Standards in Schools has sought for two years to get the Blue Valley school district to remove 14 books from its curriculum. Some of the titles include “Black Boy,” “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” and “Song of Solomon.”There’s fear that teachers will censor book choices for classes to avoid legal problems if the bill becomes law.
