Texas School District has ordered the school staff to ban the books, including Anne Frank’s adaptation and Bible, citing the challenge made through the district’s formal complaint process over the year.
The Keller Independent School District Board of Trustees has even adopted more processes that include proper scrutiny of the book that are taken inside the school libraries, one of which is, keeping them for 30 days in public review before schools are allowed to purchase them for the libraries, and many more.
In the whole scenario, the School has removed the books which were challenged recently, including the Holy Bible and an adaptation of Anne Frank.
The Keller School District has a policy where it allows guardians, employees, and residents to file objections and challenge any material that is not suitable for education purposes and may take the young mind in different directions, and in the past year, religion and ethnic topics have been looked down upon to be suitable for schools.
Also, some other books that were removed due to such challenges include books on LGBTQ experiences.
