its a difficult case, we're not in a position to judge on the poem alone.

interestingly.. i don't think its too graphic for a 14 yr old to read on their own and investigate their sexual/love curiosity... (she could be sexually active already and not know what self esteem is like in sex-who the heck knows) it is too graphic for an adult in public education to give to a 14 yr old without discussion/approval of motivation by the parents beforehand.

if he pulls her aside and says, i think you'd really love this poem, i want you to take notes on what you feel when you read it, wink wink... then, yes, it was inappropriate.

if this kid's a poetic genius and was looking for something new and shocking to write about and needed an example of let's say, love that isn't described with hearts and flowers... yes, that would qualify, but you know, i don't think she'd be going to her mom saying her teacher made her uncomfortable.

well, what makes me think it was inappropriate is mostly that the kid was so shocked by it that she immediately took it home and showed her mother. At the risk of being... well me... someone that sheltered and prissy simply isn't a poetic genius and didn't write something that warranted a sexual awakening kick in the ass from the teacher.
