Abstract

Two parents requested that "Space Station, Seventh Grade" be removed from the La Grande Middle School Library. The language and sexual references do not set positive examples for the students. The committee reviewed the book and found it typical of adolescents' behavior. The Chair of their English department stated she would rather teach the students to be discerning selectors rather than have parents make the choice.
