BELLE CHASSE, La. -- The Plaquemines Parish Council passed a resolution reinstating Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird" to the school's approved reading material.
The move comes after the book was banned in 2001, according to the ACLU of Louisiana, although the parish recently had to reinforce it after discovering teachers were reading the books to students.
The board allegedly removed all copies of the book from its schools. According to the ACLU, the board banned the book because of "offensive language and adult themes."
The parish will revisit the issue in middle of November.
