Journal Journal: Teacher reinstated after Ender's Game Controversy

It's scary that any action was taken because of an ignorant parent whinging about these books or that the bureaucrats needed three weeks to clear this matter up.

A Schofield Middle School teacher was reinstated Monday after being placed on paid administrative leave for about three weeks. The leave was related to supplemental book excerpts he read to his students during a class session.

Among the books were Ender's Game, The Devil's Paintbox and a murder mystery by Agatha Christie. The linked story is vague on details such as what was allegedly pornographic.
