Book Banning in the U.S. Education System
The article discusses two Supreme Court cases on book banning in the U.S. education system. In Board of Education, Island Trees Union Free School District No. 26 v. Pico, the Supreme Court held that a school district is not allowed to ban a book from a library for reasons that the board disagrees with the ideas contained in the book. In Hazelwood School District v. Kuhlmeier, the Supreme Court held that a school district can impose reasonable restrictions on content when dealing with a school publication.
