The Heart of the First Amendment
In a "strongly-worded decision," a judge in Miami has temporarily overturned the Miami-Dade school board's decision to remove Vamos a Cuba (and twenty-three other titles in a series).
By totally banning the Cuba books and the rest of the series, the school board is in fact prohibiting even the voluntary consideration of the themes contained in the books by students at their leisure. . . This goes to the heart of the First Amendment issue.The Amazon reviews for this book are fun/depressing to read. My favorite:
Please do not purchase this book. If you are curious, go to your public library. Please do not support the proliferation of this book.
