Michigan District Refuses To Ban Explicit Edition Of Anne Frank Diary

The New York Daily News (5/14, Malmsheimer) reports that the mother of a student at a middle school in Northville, Michigan, last month "filed a formal complaint...stating that the unedited version of 'The Diary of a Young Girl: Anne Frank' contained 'pornographic' passages that were inappropriate for her seventh grade daughter and her classmates." The piece notes that district officials nevertheless "have decided not to remove the definitive edition of Anne Frank's diary from its middle school's reading options."
