We're in teacher negotiations here too.

And the high school just banned another book (rolling eyes).

This time it is Water For Elephants.

Now, there is alcohol and sex and violence in it I hear....BUT it was an optional intercession (during break) class and a permission slip went home. Same guy is putting up a fuss as the one who got Nickel and Dimed banned. Whose kid is homeschooled 90% of the time and who signed the permission slip and only put up a fuss now. He's been on Fox news. He's definitely got another agenda. I haven't read the book but I can remember reading a lot of questionable books in high school and what the heck is the kid going to do come college and the real world? He doesn't have to agree with it - write a paper about why it's wrong. Learn something. So maddening to me. Because hey, if you have a problem with violence and sex we need to ban health, the Bible, science and US history.
