And He Calls Himself The Education Mayor

There was a story on the news tonight about a book with some pretty racy poetry that was given to a group of fifth graders.  When the education mayor was questioned about it, he blew totally it off, making a comment "you are an adult, you can read it."

While no one expects him to know every little detail of the every day going activities  in schools, he should at least be appalled and look into the matter instead of rushing off to his dinner engagement.  The only concern he has is closing schools and firing teachers.

I do NOT want my children from ages 3- 15 to be getting material like that in school.


Mayor's reaction to this, even more inappropriate. I did not realize that 11 year olds are considered adults. I thought 18 year olds are considered legal adults.
