Plano ISD has scrapped plans to remove a humanities textbook after a couple complained about photos of ancient nude sculptures and other works of art.
Officials pulled the book, Culture and Values: A Survey of the Humanities: Alternative Volume, from some classrooms last week. Hundreds of freshmen and sophomores in the district’s gifted and talented program use the text, which has never drawn a complaint in years of use.
