Enid Blyton books edited or removed from schools

I grew up reading and being read too. My Mom used to read me the classics written by Enid Blyton. I spent my childhood reading about Felicity and her adventures at Malory Towers, The Secret Seven, Famous Five, and by far my favorite The Magic Faraway Tree.

I feel very sad that such classic books are being edited and made 'politically correct'. I read that schools in England are having to take some of these classics of their shelves to become eligible for a 'race quality awards'. You can read the article I found here.
When I read books to my children that contain terms or vocabulary that we don't use anymore. I feel it is my job to explain it to them. I don't think it's right for others to make that decision for me.

What do you think...
