Banned Books 2020 – Going Green

Marshall University does not ban books! The information is provided to let people know what has been banned/challenged elsewhere.


A teacher in the Grants Pass (OR) School District’s middle school wrote a science fiction novel. It was approved for use in instruction by a parent committee. Then another parent objected that the book had “overly sensual materials for a 12 year old, talking about hooking up” and stated, “Normalizing this type of behavior, especially since a teacher…wrote it, kids may think this isn’t bad behavior.” Under consideration at this time.
