Athens Parents Want to Ban Book with Profanity

Posted: Updated:
Clarke County, GA -

Clarke County parents are trying to get the book, "And the Earth Did Not Devour Him" removed from a required reading list for 12 year olds because it contains profanity.

 A teacher at an Athens middle school chose the work from a list provided by the International Baccalaureate Program for use in an advanced language arts class.

The Clarke County school responded to disgruntled parents saying that one paragraph in the book doesn't overpower the other literary elements that the book can offer students.
