The Wrong Approach: Part Two

A second book related to Cuba has been challenged in the Miami-Dade County Schools. The objection to the book involves its inclusion of photos showing a "child with a rifle and children saluting the Cuban flag with the caption, “We will be like Che!”". The reaction of a local ACLU official, who speaks of a "growing book-banning cancer", is typically hysterical.

I fully understand why the Cuban-American mother who has brought the challenge wouldn't want her children, or any others, to see photos of children subjected to communist indoctrination. Still, as with the previous case in Miami-Dade, withdrawing the book is the wrong way to address these concerns.

I cringe when I say this, but I actually agree with the ACLU. Thanks for your blog. It's nice to hear a conservative voice in our profession.
