Profanity in books of concern in Santa Fe

The Houston
Chronicle
has a Story on a TX town that is trying to
figure out how to keep books that include vulgar words
out of classrooms.

The district\'s school libraries already require parental
permission for children to check out books from author
J.K. Rowling\'s you know what series. They say they put
the policy in place to give parents who don\'t want their
children reading such material a way to prevent
it.

\"\"In today\'s public schools, there seem to be a
lot of books creeping in that have four-letter profanity in
them,\" board member John Couch said. \"We happened
to discover some in the fifth and sixth grades, and we\'re
concerned that that kind of language is getting past
some of the teachers and into the hands of students.
