JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — (The video above is from a previous, unrelated report)
Almost a dozen books have been pulled from circulation, or in other words banned, in Duval County Schools in the past 40 years.
First Coast News told you about those books, but many people have inquired about why particular texts were banned and not others.
Below is a list of all books that have been removed by the Duval County School District from 1978 through the current school year and the reasons given as to why.
Some listed complaints include vague descriptions such as 'inappropriate' or 'not suitable'. First Coast News has reached out to inquire further about what these descriptions mean.
The district says there have been no recent requests for reevaluation since the 2008-09 school year.
