Challenge news: Part-time Indian to stay on library shelves at NC middle school.

From The Republic:

Superintendent Edward Pruden has upheld the decision by a committee of staff and parents at Cedar Grove Middle School to keep the book both in the library and the curriculum.

Pruden says his research finds the book's defenders consider it appropriate for teen readers because the issues discussed are already being faced by young people. He added the book casts such behavior in a negative light and provides readers coping skills.
