Today, a student's mother sent me an e-mail complaining that I was requiring her child to read a book containing mild profanity. She then demanded me to let him read an easier book. This would've been somewhat acceptable if the student wasn't in the 12th grade. FML

As a religious person, we're not all like this.

My favorite is that there is actually a website trying to ban certain books within the school system. Parents can read the book then grade it on how acceptable it is and give commentary on it. I don't remember specific examples, but they clearly can't comprehend text. They described a book about a young girls horrible experiences and tough life as whimsical, and silly. It was written from the child's point of view, so the terrible things weren't blatantly stated, and they thought a story containing rape was whimsical...

My English Lit teacher sometimes can't figure out how to spell words, has no effect on teaching literature. By high school English teachers aren't teaching spelling anymore.

If his mother backs the hell off and gives him a chance at an honest education then I don't see why not. :P Who knows, he may not have any issues with the curriculum and all the crazy is from his mom entirely.
