A great post from Keith Yancy, on the “common sense” of those who are not only trying to ban books in Plymouth-Canton, but exert undue influence and control over public school curriculum.

NOTE: I’ve had a surprising number of people ask me for an update on the book ban efforts in my daughter’s local high school. One book (Beloved) has been re-instated, the other (Waterland) is “in review.” In the interim, there have been a lot of school board meetings, editorials, radio interviews, etc. Here’s my most recent observations.
After spending the first 44 years of my life having never attended a local school board meeting, I’ve now attended two. And let me tell you something – they’re more interesting than you might expect. At least, they are in my town.
