Fremont school board to review controversial book

Contra Costa Times – “A controversial novel that the school board banned from classrooms this past school year will be considered again tonight. The board meets at 6:30 tonight at City Hall, 3300 Capitol Ave. In June 2009, a high-school teacher sought permission to assign Dorothy Allison’s “Bastard Out of Carolina” to her students in her Advanced Placement English class. The book tells the story of a girl whose stepfather beat and raped her.”
