Censorship Controversy

On March 13 2008, the Australian assistant to the District Mayor, Henry P. F. Chode, sparked a critical reaction from the Mental Health Trust of Gage County, when he suggested that the Teacher's Periodical cease to persuade teachers to encourage children to make friends with mentally or physically disabled children, for fears that it could alienate and disappoint them later in life when they learn of such disabilities. Given his Australian heritage, it has earned him the nickname 'Censorship Koala'.
