According to the Dallas Morning News, the Keller Independent School District sent an email to principals on Tuesday, August 16, demanding the temporary removal of the books.

Jennifer Price, the district curriculum director, said the following in an email: “By the end of today, I need all books taken out of the classrooms and library.

The inclusion of the Bible in the Dallas-area school district’s libraries was first challenged by a parent in November 2021, according to the Keller ISD website that tracks which books families or members of the community have complained about.

Even though that parent withdrew the challenge a month later, the Christian holy book was still ordered to be removed from district libraries, along with dozens of others including an illustrated version of Anne Frank’s Diary and Toni Morrison’s “The Bluest Eye.”
