I always love it when a parent complains because the word "damn" is in a middle school text. Then the student describes, in vivid detail, the latest
Freddy Krueger movie.
The best thing to happen in education: learning the joy of reading. Students who read for pleasure outperform those who don't. And the best books
that capture a reader's interest are the Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Twilight novels.
To avoid any potential issues, many of our teachers make parents sign a permission slip before reading a class novel. Although I disagree with this
teacher losing his job, parents do have the right to monitor their child's education. Chalk it up to lesson learned and keep this teacher...sounds
like he knows what appeals to teens!
