Yeah, how the hell did that happen? I'll try and do better next time.

Mav is right about the music thing, though. schools aren't assigning NIN's "Closer" as part of students studies, that is something that they are (were) searching out on their own. Anything dolled out by the school has, by it's very nature, a differelt level of implied acceptablilty to it. So while students may be listening to more graphic music, the school isn't "condoning" it by adding it to their cirriculum... at least, they shouldn't without notifying the parents.

NIN's "Closer" isn't the half of it when you listen to the "hip-hop" genre today, frankly. (And many other genres, that just most quickly comes to mind.)

I don't know about you, but I actively sought out erotic "literature" of any type, the school didn't have to condone it. Even so, as a parent of a child just about that age and at that grade level, I would have to raise my eyebrows if this was required reading. I guess I'd prefer something more subtle.

Yet, because I tend to see everything in the grey rather than on one side or another, I'd let her read this at home and would openly talk about it. I suppose that's the key for me: that I know about it and can talk to her about it.

P.S. Mav: who is that woman in the painting and who is it by? It's amazing.

I don't know who the painting is of or who did it. I did a google search for the poem on the web and that was the picture attached to it. Coincidentally, It was also on the printout of the poem that the teacher gave the kid (or at least the copy of the printout that they showed on the news) so one would assume that I found the same geocities page that the teacher did.
