The book was supposed to be taught as part of Child Abuse Prevention Month. Instead, the North Carolina Values Coalition, a conservative group, complained and began to organize a petition — then, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools pulled the book. The coalition released a statement claiming the school system wasn’t performing...
