Emmaus: Don't censor our reading lists!

231 Signatures Goal: 400

We, the undersigned, ask the East Penn School District to continue to uphold the intellectual freedom of the students at Emmaus High School. The school board should not remove the novels "Prep" and "The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test," marked clearly as recommended and not as required, from their respective summer reading lists at Emmaus High School. To do so would violate the rights of the students, led by their parents, to pursue an interest in a wide range of literary works at their own discretion. 


 We recognize that parents ultimately have the right to choose what is best for their child, but we challenge the actions taken by a few parents in an effort to censor the reading choices of all students of a variety of backgrounds and circumstances.
