Ban ALL reading ...

Wow!  This seems ridiculous!  I'm willing to bet that every passage is offensive to someone, so we may as well ban all reading material, or notify parents every time our students read something.  Isn't this the parents responsibility ... that being to monitor what their children read.  It's not like we are reading the Bible (God forbid) in public classrooms.  As if teachers don't have enough to do or worry about in this day and age, the State Board of Education is giving them yet another.  This is very sad.  Teachers sure aren't in the profession for the money, and pretty soon all of the regulations, rules, etc... will be the reason to leave.
