"Curious Incident" book to remain on school's reading list

The book causing a stir for the last week in Wilson County will remain on the reading list for Wilson County schools, for now.

Interim Director of Schools Mary Ann Sparks said in an email Friday that the book, "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time," will remain on the book list to remain in compliance with a current board policy.

"Wilson County Schools Board Policy 4.400 provides procedures for review and reconsideration of allegedly inappropriate instructional materials," said Sparks. "The Board wishes to remain in compliance with this policy and therefore will ask the director to review this complaint within the guidelines of the current policy rather than implementing the changes recently considered."

Further discussion will be considered at the board's June 2 meeting.
