The Miami-Dade School Board, overruling two review committees and the superintendent, has just voted to remove a book titled Vamos a Cuba or A Visit to Cuba from elementary school libraries. (They’re also going to ban every book in that particular series – descriptions of various countries, aimed at kindergarteners to second-graders). Critics argued the book (1) contained some factual inaccuracies and (2) presented too rosy a picture of Cuba.
Good decision? Bad?
