OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - The Papillion-La Vista Public School board upheld a prior decision to keep a book as part of the high school library collection.

The book, titled “All Boys Aren’t Blue,” was written by George M. Johnson and was previously brought to the board’s attention due to its sexual content and the depiction of sexual assault.

On Monday, the board upheld earlier decisions by the district’s American Civic and Curriculum Committee as well as Superintendent Andrew Rikli after a full review of the book.
