“oh please, do not water it down. i have spoken to the former director, Arce, and that is exactly what has happened. teachers were also told not to have their own personal copies in the classroom, so i dont know where youre getting your information from.”

“The books have not been banned from TUSD and are available in the TUSD Libraries. The supporters of MAS have lied from the start as to what was being taught at the school under the guise of MAS.

“It was awhile back, I can't put my finger on the media report now. That's what they reported. Water it down? There was no book banning. There's nothing to water down. The curriculum issue is a serious one. I am trying to help you and others who read this. The book banning issue is being promoted the American Library Association for ALA's own purposes. Don't fall for it. Stick to the curriculum issue. That's where it's at.”

“The books were physically removed from the the classrooms and the libraries, and teachers told not to teach from several books, so then what would that be called? Sounds like a ban to me.”

“dcruz1122, thanks for commenting. Local media reported the books were still available in the schools and in the libraries. As the curriculum had been removed, those books that came with the curriculum went as well, but the books were not otherwise removed, censored, banned, or anything like that from anywhere else. If your school has the book in the library and in the classroom and in the curriculum and only some books are removed since the curriculum was removed but no books were removed from the library nor from the classroom, then there is no ban. Media heard the book "banning" claims, did an investigation, and found the claims to be false.. If you want to argue there was a ban, then you have to make up facts. If you make up facts, your arguments regarding the curriculum removal which is the legitimate/real issue are that much weaker. Don't weaken your arguments by making false claims about book banning. There was no such thing.”

“This seems awfully hypocritical when many of the standard books in most school libraries will depict much of what this child drew. My 11 year old son recently checked out a star wars book from the school library, and some of the illustrations contained weapons. His friend once checked out a book from the school library about the amazon and it contained a photo of a topless native. When he showed my son, the teacher caught them looking at the photo and scolded them but my son immediately told the teacher "if you don't want students to see that picture, than why does the school have that book?" Seems that even the schools can't follow their own policies, and some children have more sense and logic than many adults in the school system.”

“I guess SNL hasn't ever been able to find any funny Latinos, men or women. Anybody know how many Latinos have even hosted SNL? Most likely why I don't watch SNL. They must be unaware of the changing demographics of this country. They want to look up the concept of opportunity cost. Makes no real difference to me anyway, I'd still much prefer the old episodes of Cantiflas.”
