"Meath Co Council calls on the Department of Education to remove all literature from the school curriculum that casually and repeatedly uses offensive racial language, such as 'To Kill A Mocking Bird' and 'Of Mice and Men, which have no place in today's curriculum."

That was the proposal by Councillor Alan Lawes who joined Newstalk Breakfast this morning.
