Letters to the editor: 4 persons expressing thoughts on censorship in schools,saying the process of censorship is distortion; concerned parents have a right to decide on book selection. The Board's ignoring parents' decisions shows the schools do not want parental involvement. "Star Trek" is an excellent example of why not to censor. Shall we expect more books on Christianity to balance witchcraft materials since no one should be denied access?
