    WHO’S YOUR DADDY? The SacBee has an article about parents “censoring” what their kids are reading in school. The teachers aren’t happy:

    A group of parents who want a stronger voice on curriculum matters say they are worried that some material is unsuitable and that their children don’t have adequate alternatives.

    Meanwhile, teachers fear their control over the classroom is being wrestled away.

    “The big issue is who is going to pick the curriculum: educators or special interest parents?” said Janice White, an English teacher at Oak Ridge High School in El Dorado Hills.

    The parents’ crime? Reading the same books as the kids and publishing reviews on the internet. Good for them.

    BTW, the SacBee has the coolest little web tool on the page. You can change font size o print it out right in the page. Neat trick.
