(LACROSSE TRIBUNE) – In early May, one Chippewa Falls parent, Stephanie Krizan, asked that the book Neanderthal Opens the Door to the Universe be removed from the ninth-grade curriculum and from bookshelves serving Chippewa Falls High School students. Krizan said in her letter demanding that the book be removed that she was concerned about vulgarity, pornographic sexual descriptions and substance abuse.
The Chippewa Falls School Board and a panel of others brought in for the occasion back in May heard Krizan’s concerns at that meeting.

“The more you input, the more you’re going to output,” Krizan said at a public meeting on the subject in May. “You’re inputting filth into our students and expecting them to do better. How is that rational?”
