Grendel kept in the curriculum

We were delighted to hear that the Sherwood, Oregon School Board voted last night to keep the novel, Grendel by John Gardner, in Sherwood High School’s 10th grade accelerated English curriculum.  Some parents object to sexual content and violence in the book, but their children were offered a different book to read.  Their views are not shared by all – only four out of 74 students chose to read different booksParents who object to the book have no right to tell other people what their children may read.
