Re: my art books have been confiscated for decency HELP

Sounds to me like you went above and beyond what was needed to protect your
students from materials deemed to mature for them. Arm yourself with
documentation - art catalogs showing the description of the books you had
confiscated, descriptions printed off Barnes & Noble, etc. - documentation
written by professionals. Document who was in the room when you had your
"nudie" speech. Do not walk into that room without documentation - your
administrator will win. Also, if I were to apply for a grant I would need
approval from my board. If you lose these books, how will you complete the
project. You are now contracted to complete the project as described or pay
the money back. Good luck!
