HARRISBURG – Philadelphia County Rep. Chris Rabb announced that he plans to introduce legislation that would establish uniform procedures for school boards to follow before being able to restrict students’ access to books.Rabb said that “book bans are an attempt to censor educators and restrict the information and educational materials that students can have access to in school.” His proposal would require the PA Department of Education and school boards to participate in, at minimum, two public hearings moderated by professionals with ample knowledge of the books in question prior to any vote to ban them. PA has the designation of being the state with the second-largest number of books that are currently banned from its school libraries and curriculum.
