Ken Jones: Ignoring realities

Regarding the Sept. 1 news article: I read with some concern about the recent controversy over “Bluest Eye” and “The Color Purple” at East Wake High School.

The books were assigned for a junior level Advanced Placement English course. The books are on the College Board’s approved reading list for the course.
