School District Sought to Ban Goya, Manet, Boticelli

After careful consideration, The Plano Independent School District in Texas has decided against removing a humanities textbook, Culture and Values: A Survey of the Humanities, from its classrooms.

The debate began last week when the District pulled the book from circulation citing parental concerns that the book contained nude images inappropriate for young teenagers. The books were primarily used in the “gifted and talented” program, and contained images from artists such as Goya, Rubens, Manet, Boticelli, Eakins, and Rodin.
