Marshall University does not ban books! The information is provided to let people know what has been banned/challenged elsewhere.
Pulled from a Litchfield (NH) Campbell High School elective course classroom after parents voiced their concerns about a short-stories unit called “Love/Gender/Family Unit” that dealt with subject matters including abortion, cannibalism, homosexuality, and drug use. The parents said the stories promoted bad behavior and a “political agenda” and they shouldn’t be incorporated into classroom teachings. The Campbell High School English curriculum adviser said the short story was selected not only for its tone and style, but also its message of respect and acceptance, not for advocating homosexuality. The English curriculum advisor eventually resigned.
