Thanks to everyone who spread the word regarding the banning of The Handmaid's Tale in San Antonio, TX. There were over 200 people at the board meeting (I was crowded into a stairwell). The board had to listen to over 3 hours of tesimony about the book- only 5 people spoke against it! The president of the board was bombarded by email! The board voted AGAINST the superintendent and the book weas re-instated on the AP reading list at Judson ISD. It was an inspiring evening. As a teacher, I was moved to see so many people- live and on the web- go out of their way to keep learning open. YOU MADE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF STUDENTS- Thanks again!!
