Q&A with a man who'd like Nickel and Dimed pulled from the reading lists in his local school district.

From PA's The Morning Call:

Q: What made you take up the cause to have it removed?

A: When I first notified the principal at Easton, I naively expected him to remove the book immediately and thank me for catching the mistake. Instead, a committee of seven teachers, two librarians and two administrators reviewed the book and reached the unanimous conclusion to continue using it without bothering to refute any of my specific objections. Then I realized that there was a disconnection between some of our professional educators and the citizens they serve.
