In fact, a local parent discovered some reading material her son brought from school and it was absolute smut! She wrote a letter to the local paper and then the school superintendant tried to obfuscate the whole thing.

It didn't violate our rights. It was simply not considered a literary book suitable for free reading time. Free reading times are not for kids to read whatever the hell they want, it's to read books that will help develop their reading abilities and vocabulary. So, if the teacher decided to say no bibles, simply because it was not the type of book intended for free reading times, he is certainly within his bounds to do so.
Comics, bibles, smut, Playstation 4 instruction manuals... Yes, there are some things that are not totally suited to "free reading" times. It should be up to the teachers discretion. Their job is to make sure the kids are learning current, modern day English, not getting their daily dose of Jesus, Muhammed, or flapjack the faery prince of planet Xenu...

For crying out loud, it is a historical book!
Yah, lets ban all historical books?
A historical book with a lot of fantasy thrown in.
