Dr. Seuss book banned from class for being too 'political'

Dr. Seuss' classic "Yertle the Turtle" has long been embraced by kids and parents, but cold-blooded administrators in a Canadian school district have just banned it from the classroom for being too "political." Officials in British Columbia's Prince Rupert School District apparently snapped after a teacher displayed a quote from the book that said, "I know, up on top you are seeing great sights, but down here on the bottom, we, too, should have rights." The district states that the teacher, who brought the quote to a management meeting, violated a ban on political messages in schools.
Good thing she didn't quote a passage from Animal Farm, or worse yet, show the kids this formerly banned clay animation
