Gilbert Grape Ban Stomped on Temporarily

In a previous post, the controversy surrounding the removal of What's Eating Gilbert Grape was aired. Last night, a committee of students, parents and staff at Carroll High School had a small majority of 5-3 pass a proposal to keep the book in the library and classrooms. However, that may not be the final say when Carroll's school board meets later in January to put the issue to rest.

It is facing a challenge due to one sexually explicit passage that a parent objects to.
