Topic: Censorship

10-second review: English departments must prepare a book, film and periodical selection policy in order to be ready for the censor.

Title: "The Students' right to Read (and Speak), Sources for Help in Formulating Policy." Thomas Tedford. English Journal (December 1974), 14-16. A publication of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).

Quote: "In a recent issue of this journal, Ken Donelson reminds English teachers of the need to develop a departmental policy on the selection of books, films and periodicals in order to deal effectively with the censor."

Comment: An important task that is as important today (2008) as it was in 1974. RayS.
