First of all, let's not judge all of Dade County by the opinions of one or two people. The teachers in the Dade County schools work tirelessly to educate the students in the best possible manner. If you really want to know the entire story, including many teacher's opinions, read the story in the Dade County Sentinel. This version of the events is much more on point with what actually took place, including the fact that many educators opposed the "banning" of the book in question. It is sad when one or two (by the way, not several) parents can dictate the educational process of all students in any school system.
I would also like to point out that an alternate book selection was available and known to the public as early as June and any student was free to choose that book if they found the other selection objectionable.
