SAN JUAN - At the end of every school year, test scores are totaled, grades are given out, and the curriculum is revised. And sometimes, part of those revisions include restricting or banning books completely from school libraries.

In Texas around 70 books from various school levels were challenged and 17 were banned from the shelves. Book banning is a practice used across the state, but over the years it has gone down from almost 50 books banned in 2006 to just 17 this past school year.
