Fight against book continues in Brunswick County

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A Brunswick County woman is taking her case against a book used in county schools to the Board of Education.

Frances Wood of Ash filed an objection earlier this year to “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian,” which is part of the curriculum at Cedar Grove Middle School. A school committee rejected her request, and Superintendent Dr. Edward Pruden denied her appeal of that decision. District spokeswoman Jessica Swencki says Wood has formally appealed to the school board.

Wood is on the public address list for Tuesday night’s school board meeting in Bolivia. The procedure for that part of the meeting gives members of the public the chance to address the board, but board members are not supposed to respond, Swencki says.

There’s no word on how or when the board will address Wood’s appeal.
