You're right. I don't know why schools don't include Delta of Venus by Anais Nin. Yes, it's a group of hardcore erotica stories, and yes, it includes a story about a father raping his daughters AND his son, but why shelter kids from that? After all, it is considered classic literature.
the books have been pulled the discussion is to see if it will stay that way

Don't parents need to take some responsibility in having conversations with their children about what they are doing or reading in school? Shouldn't the parents already be aware of any curricula taught in the public school that their child attends?
That's the way I see it.
If a parent has a complaint, discuss it.
But this knee-jerk move to pull the books THEN have a discussion is crap.
