D41 staff to present revised recommendation for 'Wallflower' at May 28 board meeting
GLEN ELLYN – Following a strong response from community members to District 41's banning of "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" from Hadley Junior High classrooms, district administrators are preparing a revised proposal to bring to the Board of Education regarding the issue.
The board previously voted April 29 to remove the book by Stephen Chbosky from classrooms after parents of an eighth-grade student objected to its sexual content and inappropriate language.
"Our innocent child has already been tainted," parent Brian Bradfield said at the meeting. "These kids – we make a decision whether they're going to be tainted or not."
