Texas School District to Remove Bible, Other ‘Challenged’ Books From Library Shelves for Review

A North Texas school district is reviewing dozens of books — including the Bible — to ensure they meet new school board standards.

Keller Independent School District, located in the northwest Dallas-Fort Worth area, sent an email Tuesday to the district’s principals and librarians asking staff to “review books that were challenged last year” under new policies approved by the district earlier this month, Keller ISD spokesperson Bryce Nieman told The Christian Post.

Included on the full list of 41 books being challenged are the Bible, Toni Morrison’s novel The Bluest Eye and a graphic novel version of The Diary of Young Girl by Anne Frank.

One of the entries on the list is a challenge submitted by a parent in November 2021, which references “The Bible (any variation- King James or otherwise),” listing the author as “Men who lived a long time ago- no 1 exact author exist (sp) for these books.”
