Reverse the Decision to Ban The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Glen Ellyn School District 41 Board of Education  recently voted 4-2 to ban The Perks of Being a Wallflower from Hadley Junior High School,  despite a review committee of teachers and administrators recommending that the book be allowed to stay. The ban was requested by two parents of an 8th grade student. Please help urge the board to support freedom of speech and the pursuit of knowledge by voting again and reversing the ban on this book. If we keep young minds from grappling with difficult issues in books, how will they learn to deal with those issues in real life?
