A Southern California school district is meeting this week to comb the dictionary before deciding whether it's too sexually explicit to be put back in classrooms.

Oak Meadows Elementary School in Riverside County has pulled the Merriam Webster dictionary. After some parents complained about the definitions of some words related to sex.

There's no ban yet, but the dictionaries have been removed, until a committee made up of parents, teachers and administrators can decide whether the dictionaries are appropriate.
