Abstract

A parent asked that "The "What's Happening To My Body" Book for Boys" be removed from the Judson Middle School Library, based on her objections to slang used to describe parts of the body. A committee composed of educators and citizens voted to replace the book with a newer version; the Salem-Keizer School Board was slated to rule on the matter.
