(Associated Press) A Mississippi school district will resume teaching "To Kill A Mockingbird" after the book was pulled from a junior high reading list.
The Sun Herald reports that Biloxi School District administrators removed the novel from the eighth-grade curriculum earlier this month after the district received complaints that some of the book's language "makes people uncomfortable."
School officials said they'll begin teaching it again in class starting Monday. Students, however, have to ask to participate and return a permission slip signed by a parent.
