Fond du Lac School District: Update on Remaining Book Challenges

Link to February 24 Fond du Lac Reporter article, "Parent may challenge more books".

Excerpt: The Fond du Lac School District is waiting for a parent to decide if she will challenge more books on the shelves at Theisen Middle School.

Superintendent of Schools Jim Sebert said he spoke with Ann Wentworth on Monday and, at the time, she was "unsure of her direction regarding the additional reconsideration requests."
When contacted Tuesday, Wentworth said she had no comment.

During a public hearing last week, a district reconsideration committee turned down Wentworth's request to have Sonya Sones' book, "One of Those Hideous Books Where the Mother Dies," removed from the library at Theisen Middle School.
