- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
We have faced similar problems teaching our son English literature prescribed by Beaverton School District. He had to study The Catcher in the Rye which has adult themes (a lot of deviant sex) and now he is studying One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest which is also filled with many adult themes (sexual perversions).
One year he had to study Holes, which I felt was quite disgusting. Sadly, most of the students do not get to read really good literature that we studied in school (like classics).
