Challenge decision: Just Listen to stay in school library.
The last article I read about this situation made it sound as if the decision had already been made. Guess not.
"I had really strong feelings," said Delia Anderson, Armwood's reading coach. "I couldn't put it down. I read it in one sitting. ... I thought it was fantastic."
Carla Wuenschel, parent of an 18-year-old at Armwood, said the author "has a perspective of young minds that's unbelievable. ... She did a tremendous job."
Parent Cheryl Watkins, a registered nurse with a 15-year-old daughter and 13-year-old son, didn't make the meeting but submitted her written review.
"The music played at Pep Rallies & the dances at this school is 10 X more offensive than anything I read in this book!" Watkins wrote.
"As a parent, woman & nurse, it's my opinion that this book not only stay in the library but also become a mandatory read," she wrote.
