LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A class reading assignment infuriates the parents of a 14-year-old Valley Traditional High School student.
They said their daughter's questions about the book left them speechless.
The book is called "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian." "She was masturbating and (describing) how to masturbate and how she did it and also giving a boy a (expletive) and going into great detail of how to perform it," said Vincent.
Vincent took the book to her daughter's step-father, who became speechless.
"Her being the age that she's in right now, you just freeze up. You don't know what to say to a child that young," said the girl's father, Michael Basham.
It has been around since 2007, and even received the National Book Award for young people's literature.
But it has also been banned in several school systems.
The girls' parents said Jefferson County Public Schools should be one of them.
"She just started showing me all these pages all this deep detail, and it just blew my mind," said Amanda Vincent, the student's mother.
When Vincent's 14-year old daughter began reading "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian," she became upset. Vincent couldn't believe the actions described by one of the literary characters.

If anybody - ANYBODY - on this site thinks that the NEA and publik edukashun isn’t out to destroy your children...well, we’ll pity them and to blazes with you.
And the justification for this by the ‘educator’ involved is?
From the sounds of this article parents, some of them are waking up to the horrors of the NEA and Publik Skools.

Other than the book won awards I have no clue.
I can’t figure out why it won awards.
How do decent individuals employed in public education tolerate the perverts & freaks in their ranks?
Because the decent are a minority in a sea of deviants and leftists.
The pedophiles in Cell Block D rate the book “A MUST READ!”.
It won awards because the judges are of like mind.
And this is why my future children will NOT be attending public schools.
“How do decent individuals employed in public education tolerate the perverts & freaks in their ranks?”
Easy to understand: Disagreeing with the agenda makes life exceeding difficult and may result in being fired.
Note: That 14 year old is atypical. Thanks to President Blow Job (AKA Bill Clinton) the sad fact is that oral sex is not uncommon among fifth graders.
Probably the awards came from Liberal orgs.
Because it paints white people as racist.
Two parents have woken up, at least.
Too bad they slept through most of the damage done to their 14-year-old daughter. Oh well, not all children have parents who love them.
This is what you call sexual harrassment. The girl did not want to be approached with the teacher’s pervert porn in class and the authority figure in the classroom would not stop when told to back off by girl’s parents.
If you did this to an employee at the office, you would be sued for sexual harassment.
I just don’t understand how conservatives can continue their kids in government schools. Would they hire a babysitter from a company pervaded by perverts and devoted to moral nihlism? No, but they send their kids off to the Indoctrination Camp every day without much of a bother.
Mostly, it’s because of “not my child’s school,” “not my child’s teacher” syndrome. Everyone consoles themself that it’s just the OTHER guy’s school that is part of a corrupt institution.
There are many options besides government schools.
Moreover, if every conservative took their kids out of government schools, it would put a considerable and efficient hurt on the power of Leftism in this country. And do so immediately.
What are you waiting for? Go for it, parents.
This is simply child pornography. Something the Libs absolutely love.
By law, this girl could not, without her parents’ consent, have seen a movie depicting what she was assigned to read in middle school.
She could not go to 7-11 and buy a magazine describing these incidents in great detail.
Had her neighbor showed her a book with this crap in it, or told her about these sex acts in great detail, he would be liable for prosecution for child sexual abuse.
Yet a government school shoves it in her face. And had she not had the relationship she had with her parents, leading her to discuss it with them, it might have had its intended (by Liberals) effect.
Fortunately in Texas, proposed textbooks have to be approved by the Texas Education Agency before they can be adopted by local school districts. There’s lots of conservative activists involved in the review process, so it’s hard for leftists to ram through leftist propaganda into public school text books.
It is what I have been repeating hundreds of times. Burn textbooks and destroy the DOE. It is out to intentionally destroy your children and make slaves of them.
Sex Ed is designed by cultural Marxists to destroy the innocence of children. When they do teach sex to young children—they remove morality from it and reduce it to an animal act. They expose kids at young ages to sick ideas where their focus is reduced to body parts instead of intellectual pursuit. They become cynical and distrustful of adults and they make fun of the opposite sex. They lose all respect for the opposite sex and become obsessed by sex since the adults seem to be focused on it. Children emulate the adults. You teach them about sex and they will engage in it.
Children are too immature to even understand the emotional aspects of the sexual act. Innocence in children was considered important after Rousseau and the middle ages—which didn’t protect children. Rousseau stated that intellectual capacity and growth is destroyed to large extent once you get children interested in sex. Yes, you can sexualize children. Abused 5 year olds are known to hump other children on playgrounds. It is learned behavior—like homosexuality. They normalize it—children do it and it destroys children and their future. They become addicts and mentally ill. Homosexuality is actually a mental illness caused by emotional and physical abuse in young children and during sexual identity formation.
Since Sex Ed was inserted into public schools-—morality and God has been destroyed-—promiscuity, abortions, STD’s etc., are up 700 % or more. Cultures can not exist without sexual restraint-—and sex ed encourages sex and promiscuity in children. (I think they are grooming the boys for the pederasts like Jerry Brown must be.)
They strip all behavior of morality-—and all cultures collapse if the have immoral people—you can have no economic prosperity when people are immoral and there is no trust. Plato knew that and Machiavelli and the Founders said that Virtue was necessary in all Republics for freedom.
Corrupting children is easiest to do by destroying morality by teaching the sex acts and normalizing unnatural sex acts like sodomy which destroys all logic and cognitive skills. They will be easily brainwashed and conditioned—because they have no analytical skills-—destroyed by cognitive dissonance. You can’t teach Lies to kids and then expect logical thinking. Never will happen.
Destroy the family and you destroy the emotional and normal sexual development of all children. Marxists are out to kick out God (destroys our legal system and Natural Rights) and create immoral people so govt. can take total control because otherwise you have complete chaos.
So Kentucky is a little sister of californicate? Who knew?
This is easy to fix. Read the worst parts to the school board and higher politicians.
Well said and I agree 100%. Thank you.
“”Vincent took the book to her daughter’s step-father, who became speechless.

Yeah - it’s putrid and sickening but does no one ever proofread what they write? I simply cannot read articles that have contradictory information in them.
No problem there. The agenda is to utterly destroy children then America from the inside.
Parents who hear about this probably think it's to absurd to be true.
Is that a Lippo lippi picture?
Of course, this is NOT a “textbook”, it’s just a “literary” work. A narrative book assigned by teachers or department heads at the particular school.
“Fortunately in Texas, proposed textbooks have to be approved by the Texas Education Agency before they can be adopted by local school districts. Theres lots of conservative activists involved in the review process, so its hard for leftists to ram through leftist propaganda into public school text books.”
LOL. I watched some of those discussions they had. The liberal heads were exploding. I can’t remember all the stuff they were arguing about.
One thing I do remember was how the libs wanted to eliminate all that old stuff about the founding fathers and include more about more recent years in order to be more interesting and relevant to today’s children.
Does the same thing apply to required reading materials??
And speaking of that, isn't the term "Indian" RAAAAAAAAACISTTM?
Your future children? Keep us posted!
I have been to librarian’s conventions, the large book trade shows, not a heterosexual in the bunch.
Indeed, they emulate your very movements. I think most parents fail to recognize the dominating influence they have, mostly because their children devote so much effort to disobedience.
You teach them about sex and they will engage in it.
This stands in contradiction to your immediately preceding statement, it seems to me. You can talk all you want, they will watch what you do.
I would suggest that the parents should push for prosecution of the teacher for just that.
What I would like to know is what would the typical legal consequences be in most states if you just beat the living crap out of the teacher?
Sounds like “Penthouse Forum” rather than a text book.
Let the kids be kids, at least for a little while. Why burden them with adult matters like Oral Sex and masterbation? This I blame on Bill Clinton.
You make an excellent point! Just having the book in the workplace would likely be interpreted as creating a hostile work environment.
The state of Texas won't pay for it. It's not like college where students buy their text books. I doubt a teacher would buy a copy for each student.
I it's an assigned reading, wouldn't each student have a copy? If so, that would mean the school district would pay for the copies. In Texas, the school districts wouldn't be allowed to spend money to get the materials that aren't on the state approved list.
As I understand the story this was an assigned reading project. I’m guessing the school has a group of books from which the students can select from to accomplish the assignment. That is what the story hints at and this list must be approved by some council, local maybe. Parents can object if they follow procedure. I doubt that all the students were assigned or selected the same book to read, probably first come first served. JMO
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
Pinging BOTH homeschool lists because this is one of those things that's SOOOOOOO bad that everyone needs to see it.
If I were to take a Penthouse magazine and open it up in front of a 14 year old, boy or girl, would I not be guilty of sexual abuse of a minor?
My original point was that in Texas, it would have been vetted by the TEA at the state level. Local left leaning school boards in Austin wouldn't be able to push their own texts and assigned readings.
Well, a district attorney in MA some years ago informed a parent that public schools, museums, and libraries were exempt from pornography laws.
I guess it would be a good idea for parents to check out the school’s reading list, among other things, before enrolling their children. You probably can a lot about a school’s culture by checking out their reading lists.
This is tame compared to NYC. Where mandated for 11 year olds include studying different types of condoms and mapping a route to the nearest abortion clinic and its also very graphic and pro-perversion.
That's easy. It won "awards" (notice no one can tell you which awards, or from whom) because it's filth that only degenerate lefties would love for kids. That is a fact.
I offer this example from my own life: When one of my daughters was a junior in high school, she was enrolled in an Honors English class. They were assigned, as part of their course work, a Toni Morrison (a black wench who is the absolute darling of the left) "novel" to read. In the first two pages of the book was a graphic description...and I mean GRAPHIC...of incestual rape. It only went downhill from there.
I wish I was kidding. Saw it with my own eyes.
I was furious. Her mother was furious. We called a meeting with the principal and the teacher.
Keep in mind this is a new high school in a very upscale neighborhood.
We show up, and in the principal's office sit the "teacher" and the head of the school's English department. You probably guessed it: The "teacher" was some dumpy, bespectacled 20-something who I can guarantee you never got asked for a date in her life. All she was missing was sensible shoes, best I could tell. Uber-lib....idiot.
I'll summarize by saying I proceeded to eviscerate this little bitch in front of her bosses (the principal seemed bemused; I called his sorry ass on that, too....but the English Dept. head, a middle aged woman, seemed very uncomfortable). I never once raised my voice....which was very hard.
When it was time to wrap up, I leaned forward in my chair toward this little snot-nosed, sarcastic little bitch....and I said the following:
"Some day, young lady, you may actually get lucky and be asked to get married. Not sure in your case, but it's possible. You're still young. Then, you will probably have children. One day, and I guarantee it will happen, one of your kids will pick up the remote control and "surf" to some TV channel with content you will NOT want them to see. You will find yourself diving for that remote to change the channels IMMEDIATELY."
"When that day happens.........I want you to remember this conversation today."

More evidence that insane and evil perverts are running the school systems. SOME - a very few - local schools might be generally okay, but even in the 80s I noticed that apparently "innocuous" text books for grade school kids had hints and innuendos of all manner of leftist propaganda, using methods that many parents would not notice. And now their propaganda is far from subtle. Anyone with kids in school needs to see EVERY SINGLE PIECE OF MATERIAL that is being used, every video, every single thing. Everything. And of course many schools do not want parents to know what's being taught. They will lie.
