New library collection policy at McKinney (Texas) Independent School District cause for concern
The National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC) has written to McKinney Independent School District in McKinney, Texas, concerning a recent change to district policy.
The District has amended Board Policy EFB Local to exclude books from school libraries that contain material that appeals to “the prurient interest of a minor in sex, nudity, or excretion” or describes sexual activity in a “patently offensive” way, even if they have substantial educational value for students. We are concerned that the revised policy is overbroad and thus could be abused.
Thus, we urge the District to rescind its recent amendment to board policy.
