About this Article

Glen Ellyn District 41 school board members will decide Monday night whether to reinstate a controversial book removed from eighth grade classrooms in April. The board will consider two separate motions: whether to return "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" to Hadley Junior High School eighth grade classrooms as an independent reading option for students, and whether to approve updated procedures for informing parents about controversial classroom texts.
