Scholastic pulls Path to 9/11 "Discussion Guide," saying, "[T]he materials did not meet our high standards"


Facing intense criticism, including by Media Matters for America, over its "Discussion Guide for the Classroom" -- reportedly sent to high school teachers nationwide to aid in conducting discussions with students of ABC's "docudrama" The Path to 9/11 -- Scholastic Inc. announced on September 7 that it is removing the materials from its website, stating, "[T]he materials did not meet our high standards." In a press release, Scholastic further stated: "A new classroom discussion guide for high school students is being created and will focus more specifically on media literacy, critical thinking, and historical background." The company said the new materials will be made available September 8.
