Chicago Public Schools denies it banned book
CHICAGO (AP) – Chicago Public Schools is being criticized for its handling of a graphic novel officials say may not be appropriate for some students.
CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett sent a letter to principals Friday clarifying that the district is not banning the book “Persepolis.” The letter came after the teacher’s union and others said CPS had banned it.
“Persepolis” tells the story of a young woman growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution.
