The state of American education continues to dismay

I seem to be spending a fair amount of time this week pointing to the horribles of the American education system. Today's horrible is the middle school teacher in Maryland who decided "the heck with real literature, such as Austen, Dickens, Tolstoy, Hugo, etc. Let's have the kids read snuff books and porn." No kidding. This teacher decided that it would be fun to have the kids read and report on books from a list of banned books that included snuff books and gay porn. For more details, check out the Independent Women's Forum which, in turn, will give you more links. Clearly, parents cannot be too vigilant.
