Cormier Book Gets Pulled From High School

Baldwin City Signal: Board requests review of ninth grade book

A decision to pull a controversial young-adult novel from a freshman class until it could be determined whether it was appropriate instructional material was supported by the Baldwin Board of Education Monday. In a 5-2 vote, the school board voted against returning copies of "We All Fall Down" to the ninth grade orientation class at Baldwin High School until a committee reviews the Robert Cormier novel and decides whether it should remain part of the curriculum.
