LG board to consider book removal
The Observer (La Grande)
Space station, seventh grade by Jerry Spinelli
La Grande; Union County
Carl Ziegler;Pat Atkinson; Kathy Knight
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.
