The Tortilla Curtain
Challenged on the Santa Rosa (CA) High School reading list. A review committee approved the continued use of the book with the following guidelines: "The teacher must appropriately prepare students for parts of the book that may be considered provocative, limit the book to juniors and senoirs; should a parent object to the book, board policy is currently in place that allows a student to be excused from the book assignment, and provides for an alternative assignment without penalty to the student."
