WEISER, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — A group of parents in Weiser are spreading the word about an incident where students were exposed to what they say was “graphic and sexually explicit material” during class.
Jonathon and Karlee Lerew said their 14-year-old daughter was in a creative writing class at Weiser High School when the teacher read portions of a poem called “Howl” by Allen Ginsberg. They added the poem in its entirety was made available to students thereafter.
Parental advocacy group Power2Parent said by sharing the poem with students, the children were exposed to “pornographic, salacious and obscene material.”
“No parents were notified that this was happening. No email, no phone call, no letter sent home,” said Power2Parent Weiser Chapter President Narie Young. “It was done without parents giving approval.”
