BOOK RECONSIDERATION AT MEMORIAL SCHOOL
4/11/24

The book titled I Am Billie Jean King has been brought to the Medfield Public School Reconsideration Committee. A request was filed by a parent to have the book removed from the Memorial School library for the following themes & concerns: sexual orientation, romantic feelings, & divorce.
 
The Reconsideration Committee made the recommendation that the book remain in the library, and Superintendent Marsden agreed. The parent appealed this decision, and it will go to a vote with the School Committee.
 
At an upcoming meeting (date TBD) the School Committee will be voting on whether or not to support Dr. Marsden’s recommendation to keep the book in the Memorial library. Also at this subsequent meeting, the School Committee will be accepting public comment.
