A response to a risqué read: An Ontario principal comments on a book about an intersex teenager given to a 12-year-old student by one of his teachers.
This is a follow-up to our previous story about an outraged mother and age appropriate school material.
Full statement from Principal Andrew Harris:
We regret this unfortunate occurrence in the selection of additional reading material made available in one of our classes at Frenchman’s Bay.
P.S. The book in question was not a part of the regular reading program, but was provided as additional material made available for extra reading.
The parent and I have met and discussed our mutual concerns. In addition, I have apologised to the parent on behalf of the school for the use of a book which was not approved nor age appropriate.
I will meet with the student upon their return from holidays and explain this book was not suitable for the class.Our administration and school staff have also made efforts to review other books to avoid a similar situation in the future.
The process for selection of appropriate reading material has been reviewed.
