Abstract

The Holt Impressions curriculum will remain at Lincoln County Schools. After four hours of testimonies from over fifty people the school board decided that the curriculum would stay in the county classrooms. Parents are concerned about the violence and witchcraft in some of the stories in the books. In two years the books will be scheduled for review and the parents were promised that they would be asked their opinions then.
