I read the stir article in another group about a teacher buying his 14 year old student '50 Shades of Grey' for a reading assignment.
It says that for an independent reading assignment, the teacher asked all his students what they wanted to read. The teacher then went out and bought all the books for his students. The student in question wanted to read 50 Shades of Grey, so that is what the teacher bought.
My immediate thought was 'how nice of the teacher to buy the all the books for his class'. Then I thought, why on earth would he buy an erotic novel for a 14 year old. Wouldn't it have been better to ask the students parents first, OR suggest a student choose another book?
What do you think? Would you be mad is a teacher bought an inappropriate book for your teen?
Do you think it is no big deal?
