Appleton: Materials Review Committee's Decision Won't Be Appealed
Link to November 11 Appleton Post-Crescent article, "Appleton mom Linda Hash won't appeal school ruling on book".
Excerpt: The young adult novel "The Body of Christopher Creed" will remain a part of Appleton Area School District's ninth-grade communication arts curriculum.
Linda Hash, an Appleton East High School parent who had challenged the book by Carol Plum-Ucci as inappropriate for that age group, said she will not appeal School Supt. Lee Allinger's decision to support a material review panel's recommendation to take no removal action.
"It's my understanding an appeal can be made only on procedural grounds and the legality," Hash said. "So there's really not a whole of lot of point in proceeding any further."
