Book banning controversy in Chicago

Here is a short bit on a controversial measure to remove a certain book from the reading curriculum at Chicago Public Schools.  When students found out about this, they created an uproar.  It seems that my alma mater high school, Lane Tech, played a major role in the whole affair, as it was a Lane student reporter that first brought the story to light, and Lane students were the ones that protested the loudest.  I'm proud of those kids for making their voice heard.
