Fort Worth Parents Charged Over $1,200 To See Curriculum Book Lists

On August 8, Kristina Denapolis, whose daughter is in 8th grade, filed a public records request with the Fort Worth Independent School District for copies of the book lists for kindergarten through 12th grade.

She was told the request would cost an eye-popping $1,267.50 to fill.
