Another ray of sunshine for an otherwise kinda okay nice day, the superintendent of Sauk Prairie schools in Wisconsin said that they would be keeping Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian despite parental complaints. Go Wisconsin educators.
Here's the copy from the most 80s NBC affiliate out there, WMTV:
The superintendent of Sauk Prairie schools announced his recommendation to keep a controversial book in Sauk Prarie's curriculum at Monday's school board meeting.
"The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian," a novel by Sherman Alexie about growing up on a Native American reservation, is at the center of the controversy. Parents complained that the book adult content, which includes sex, smoking, drug use and other mature themes, was not appropriate for high schoolers to read.
