Tea Party school board candidate Tony Dolz did not earn enough support to win a seat on the school board in Thousand Oaks. He was supported by the Republican Party and many Tea Party activists. His website used to have only two issues on it.
One of his issues was banning The Kite Runner. Why? Because in the process of making the Taliban look evil it describes some of the horrible things they do in graphic detail. I am not sure why he wanted to ban The Kite Runner.
I think high school students are ready to learn about the Taliban.
