"Most recently, the CBLDF has called for a school district in Connecticut to rescind a graphic novel ban carried out against the district's own policies."

Do you have any more details about this? It could very be a school district dealing with a limited budget deciding not to buy graphic novels. They tend to be far more expensive than regular books. Also, you can make the argument that they don't provide as much value to someone as reading a regular book. I would think that English teachers would wants kids to do book reports on actual books and not on books with lots of pictures.

I don't know the details about this. Also about lifting the 'ban'. Its easy enough to lift the 'ban' and then have the people who purchase books simply not buy any graphic novels. I would agree with this. As stated, the cost of graphic novels is higher, so you can get a wider variety of regular books than you can get graphic novels. I would also argue that the educational value to kids is higher with a regular book than a graphic novel.

Again I don't know the details of the ban.
