Anne-FrankA reconsideration committee in Northville, Michigan, voted to retain Anne Frank’s The Diary of a Young Girl after it was challenged by a mother of a middle schooler who called the book “pornographic.”

In a letter to the community, Assistant Superintendent Bob Behnke wrote that “the committee felt strongly that a decision to remove the use of ‘Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl – The Definitive Edition’ as a choice within this larger unit of study would effectively impose situational censorship by eliminating the opportunity for the deeper study afforded by this edition.”

Right on!

Over at The Huffington Post, Dr. Logan Levkoff rails against the lack of information about sex, masturbation and the body that could lead a student to be “uncomfortable” with Anne’s descriptions of her own anatomy.
