The Banned Books Debate

Is book banning ever acceptable?

Do schools have the right to ban books? Do parents as taxpayers and funders of public libraries, have the right to choose what books libraries provide? When do books cross the line and who gets to decide? Is there even a line? These are questions to ponder while debating censorship of books.
