U.S. Supreme Court Won't Hear Case of Removal of Cuba Book
Over at School Law, Mark Walsh reports that the U.S. Supreme Court has declined to hear appeals about the removal of a book from school library shelves in Miami-Dade County, Fla.
The school board's decision to remove the book was struck down by a federal court, but a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit, in Atlanta, ruled that the school board didn't violate the First Amendment by removing the book.
Mark writes that a father in the Miami-Dade County, Fla., school district protested that his daughter's elementary school had the book. He contended the book ignored the realities of the Communist regime under leader Fidel Castro.
