So here's the thing: my initial reaction to this article was disbelief. I mean, porn in EG? Huh? But a more thorough reading of the article reveals that the article never actually says that EG contains any of the alleged objectionable content; it just name-drops the book a bunch of times because it is one of the books that came under review. That made me feel quite foolish.A Schofield Middle School teacher has been placed on administrative leave while officials investigate whether the teacher breached school policy or the law when he read to his class from a science fiction book described by one parent as pornographic.
Sources said the teacher read from three books, among them"Ender's Game" by Orson Scott Card, as part of the district's literacy initiative program. Card's 1985 novel won several science fiction awards and is listed on numerous children's literary review websites as appropriate for children 12 and up.
The incident that came to light this week involved a student's complaint concerning materials characterized by the student and his parent as pornographic, according to a press release issued by the school district.
So naturally, I'm giving you the opportunity to feel just as foolish as I did.
