Plaintiffs seeking to overturn the Missouri Board of Education’s decision to remove certain books from school libraries recently ran into a rather cold-hearted federal judge.

As a result, the plaintiff (identified only as CK-W) has rescinded its motion for preliminary injunction. The incident concerned two of his policies for the Wentzville School District. The first policy allowed librarians to remove material that was “beyond age sensitivity.” The second policy provides a process for dealing with book complaints. According to the policy, after the principal receives a complaint, the book will be “removed from use unless the material questioned is basic text, pending a board investigation and final action by the school board.” ”. Within 15 days of receiving the complaint, the superintendent will appoint a nine-person “review panel.” Within 20 days of appointment of the Review Board, the Board shall meet, review the written request for reconsideration, read and evaluate the problematic material, and report in writing its findings and recommendations to the supervisor. you have to create a letter. The Commission may retain materials “unrestricted,” retain them “with restrictions,” or recommend that they not be retained. At the school board’s next meeting, the superintendent will report the board’s recommendations to the board, and the board will make the final decision on whether to retain the material.
