Should local high schools restrict access to books or materials with graphic content?

North Kingstown School Committee officials found themselves in the middle of a debate over curriculum this week as members of the public sparred Tuesday night over the topics of sexuality and gender identity and how appropriate it is for those subjects to be explored by local students. At particular issue was the inclusion of a book titled “Gender Queer” that was recently added to the high school library. The memoir, about gender identity, includes images and discussion of sexual acts.
