Parental Concerns re. Questionable Content
Not long ago a parent "learned her son was required by his public school AP English class to read a book with graphic depitions of gang rape, molestation, bestiality, and violence towards children. Equally disburbing, the failure to notify [the parent] prior to the assignment is normal operating procedures." This is unacceptable. Guidelines are needed, ones that respect parents' (ans students') values. Thank you.
