Banning Books in Miami

Schools are supposed to introduce children to a variety of ideas and viewpoints, but a few years ago, the Miami-Dade School Board decided to put one viewpoint off limits. It banned the children’s book “A Visit to Cuba” from its school libraries because it said the book offers too positive a portrait of life under the Castro regime. Adding insult to injury, a federal appeals court upheld the ban last week.
