Glen Ellyn school district bans ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’
A suburban school board votes to ban a book from school shelves.
The book “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” has been banned by Glen Ellyn School District 41 after two parents complained about sexual content and inappropriate language.
Officials say the book was part of a classroom collection at Hadley Junior High chosen by students to read independently and was not required.
Some parents and teachers are calling it censorship.
The book was first published in 1999 and the film adaptation was released last year.
