CABARRUS COUNTY, N.C. — A controversial debate over book policy in Cabarrus County schools took a turn when a board member read a sexually explicit scene aloud from one of the books available for students.

The board members asked their teenage interns to leave the room before reading a passage from John Greene’s “Looking for Alaska.”

“I do not feel comfortable leaving children in here under the age of 17,” said board member Keshia Sandidge.

“This book was in our school system, and I am transparently reading it to you,” said Vice Chair Laura Blackwell. “And I am transparently saying two of (the books) are missing and I’m wondering where they are, and I’m guessing they’re probably under some kid’s mattress.”

This book is going to be one that will be the example and start the process for this literature committee to look at,

The board chair said that no books have been banned.

However, some books were pulled last spring while the board works to approve final policy revisions.
