Open Access Graduate Research Paper


Research for this study covers the 1974-1975 school year and the 1975- 1976 school year. A comparison of the data collected from the two years will show that as the media centers become a more important and integral part of the school curriculum, their visibility will cause material in the centers to become more subject to question. There will therefore be an increase in censorship in the schools in the 1975-1976 school year. Research will also show that persons in the community who make complaints against material have common character1stics, such as religious background, educational level and membership in special interest groups.
