Girl, Uninterrupted: Board replaces censored books

The New Rochelle Board of Education announces that it will replace the 50 censored copies of Girl, Interrupted and that
[N]o further modifications of this type, i.e., removal of pages, shall be permitted under any circumstances. It has always been the policy of the City School District of New Rochelle that students be advised in advance if a particular assigned text contains material that might be offensive to some individuals, so that such individuals can “opt out” of the assignment and a different text can be substituted. This policy will continue to be observed in the future.
This story got around: picked up on Boing Boing, Hot Air and The New Yorker.
