Measuring Self-Censorship in School Media Centers
The OPACs of 102 Florida public highs schools were searched for twenty-five controversial titles. The results showed that over 75% of the schools sampled had fewer than 50% of the controversial books. An attempt was made to improve upon a previous study by accounting for a lack of books resulting from budget issues. This attempt was flawed. Thoughts on how to improve this aspect of the study are discussed.
