A parent complained that an insipid children’s book, part of a series of picture books on nations and cultures of the world, was too pro-Cuban. The two local committees that reviewed the book said it should not be banned. The head of the school system said it should not be banned. But the Miami-Dade school board — led by a man who’s about to run for State Senate — decided to ban it anyway.
Lawsuits to ensue.
Time for the bananas again. Seriously, when will Miami change or be changed? It is just a merry-go-round of dysfunction and it is older than old. It isn’t even perversely entertaining anymore.
No! The fact that the parents’ committees and the head of the school system were overwhelmingly *against* the ban is a *HUGE* step forward. The Board is just behind the times.
