As parents across the nation grow more and more vocal about their opposition to woke curriculum like critical race theory and gender indoctrination, a case in Nevada shines a new light on how truly disturbing some classrooms have become.
While a school board in Tennessee was busy banning a Pulitzer Prize winning Holocaust novel, the Clark County School Board in Nevada shunned a mother raising concern over a pornographic assignment.
The Las Vegas mother was distraught to find her 15-year-old daughter sent home from school with a pornographic poem to memorize and recite in front of her classmates. The mother took her concern to a recent Clark County School Board meeting, where she attempted to read the assignment sent home with her daughter.
She prefaced her attempt to read the assignment by saying, “This will be horrifying for me to read to you, but it will give you perspective on how she must’ve felt when her teacher required her to memorize this and to act it out in front of her entire class.”
The mother, holding back tears, attempted to read the graphic assignment saying, “I don’t love you. It’s not you, I don’t like your d*ck, or any d*ck in that case. I cheated, Joe.”
The mother is then cut off by a female school board member, “Excuse me, thank you for your comment. Forgive me, but we’re not using profanity.”
The mother quickly rebuts, “The teacher required my daughter to memorize and read this pornographic material.”
The school board member interrupts again, claiming that the assignment is too profane to be read at a “public meeting.” Though the graphic assignment was suitable for a class of 15-year-old children, it was deemed not of “decorum” to be read at a public school board hearing.
Baffled, the concerned mother says, “If you don’t want me to read it to you, what was it like for my 15-year-old daughter to have to memorize pornographic material?”
The mother was not given another chance to recite her daughter’s assignment but rather cut off completely. The reaction from the Clark County School Board is not surprising however, as the National School Boards Association requested that involved mothers like this should be considered domestic terrorists for protesting curriculum.
The Clark County School District commented on the issue, saying they were aware of the video, and that the mother was given her full time to comment.
The school district told the Daily Caller that it is “investigating the circumstances surrounding a class assignment consisting of a student-generated writing exercise that produced content not conducive to student instruction.”
