EVANSVILLE, Ind. — A dozen titles have officially been restricted or entirely removed from shelves by the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation.
The Evansville Courier & Press reports that the books were selected after years of parent challenges regarding their content.
Staff members evaluated materials by checking for mature content, such as profanity and sexual content. They also referenced resources like Common Sense Media, the School Library Journal, and Goodreads.
