HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — The Henrico School Board voted unanimously Thursday to follow the recommendation of its Instructional Materials Review Committee and keep a book in elementary school libraries that had been challenged by parents who believe it is inappropriate. Several parents had challenged The School for Good and Evil, by Soman Chainani, telling committee members that it contained too much “glorified violence” to be appropriate for elementary school students.
