So there's some great online debate going on right now over whether or not this teacher should have been fired for reading a controversial poem with his students. Apparently, in an AP course, a student brought in a copy of the very sexually explict poem "Please Master" by Allen Ginsberg, and he asked the teacher to read it aloud. He did, and later, a student complained in another class --- and long story short, the teacher was fired. I'm honestly not sure why this is even up for discussion. I can't believe any high school teacher would consider reading this poem with their students. Now, I'm really liberal, and I'm opposed to most censorship, but I just don't understand the defense of this poem. What would you think if your senior, in an AP class, read this piece? Would you be okay with it? I should clarify... I don't necessarily think he should have been fired. I would be okay with a reprimand. But I don't think this poem has a place in a high school English class.
