Over the summer, teacher and poet Kate Clanchy had agreed to rewrite certain passages in her memoir, after complaints arose of racism and ableism in them.
Now, the Guardian reports, those plans have been shelved — as have all of her books.
Clanchy and her publisher, Pan Macmillan, are no longer working together, which will end distribution of all of her books, not just Some Kids I Taught and What They Taught Me.
A statement issued by both parties described the decision as a "mutual agreement" to part company.
