Former Weather Underground member William Ayers will not be visiting Naperville North High School next week.Dr. Ayers' visit has been canceled.

His relationship with President Obama became a lightning rod during the 2008 presidential election.

The appearance was planned to be with a select group of students whose parents granted them permission.

But over the weekend, emails and phone calls expressing outrage over the invitation caused District 203 administrators to cancel.
