ATLANTA – Today, the ACLU of Georgia sent a letter to the Governor, Speaker of the House, and members of the House of Representatives urging them to  oppose Senate Bill 226, a bill that overwrites existing, locally-determined mechanisms for parents to file complaints about school materials that they find objectionable.

SB 226 threatens to chill the open exchange of ideas in Georgia schools. The ACLU of Georgia joins the Georgia Library Media Association, the Georgia Library Association, and various school board representatives and school principals all of whom have spoken out in opposition to SB 226,” said Christopher Bruce, political director of the ACLU of Georgia.
