In last month’s Catalyst, we ran an article about Grimsley High School in Greensboro, North Carolina. We printed a letter from Dr. Donohue to the Superintendent of the Guilford County Schools, Dr. Jerry Weast. At issue was the propriety of assigning a patently offensive book, The Old Gringo.
The final vote by the school board was 6-5 to keep the book. However, before the Catholic League protested, there was not one school board members who was even leaning our way. So scratch this one up as a moral victory for the league. More important, we do not expect to be called upon to deal with Catholic bashing material in this school district again.
