Nostalgia time! NCAC blogger Rebecca is moving on…

Rebecca Zeidel has been an astute and dedicated* blogger here at NCAC blog. Chairing the Kids’ Right to Read Project (a project co-sponsored by NCAC and ABFFE), she’s written about book censorship,  science censorship, and censorship of youth voices. Today’s her last day, so I thought we’d bring out one of her more infamous blog posts:

Super sez: ‘TTYL’ has g2g

Something is missing from the school lib in Round Rock, TX. Last week, school Superintendent Dr. Jesús Chávez pulled TTYL by Lauren Myracle from district middle school libraries. All of ‘em. That equals a book ban. A.k.a. censorship!

The super and some parents think the book is just ‘trouble’. But that’s up to each student 2 decide 2gether with his or her parents. Luv the book or h8 it, but don’t tell other ppl whether or not 2 read it. No one has 2 read something just b/c it’s in the library.

We r NOT happy abt the super’s decision, and we r telling the school board what we think. B/c what gr8 pg-turners from ur school lib shelves will be the nxt 2 go, just b/c someone doesn’t think they r ok for teens to read?

We r NOT happy to see her go, but wish her well in her future endeavors.

* and amusing! See selection above.
