D20 backs down on banning books

Colorado Springs Independent: Academy District 20 apparently has returned several books to its shelves after a district patron objected to their removal and then asked that the Bible, too, be removed, citing numerous lewd passages.

On July 21, Kathy Nameika, legal specialist with D20, wrote to Rogers as follows:

“On behalf of Academy School District 20, I am writing in response to your emails on July 14 and June 12, 2023. You request that the District either ban the Bible based on the criteria it has used to remove two books with similar sexual content or cease removing books and return the two books to the shelves.
