RFH Reading Assignments, Rumson NJ 07760
PETITION : Apologies in advance for the offensive language/passages you are about to read. It has not been redacted because it is exactly what the students are exposed to for mandatory reading assignments at RFH.
Petition to remove books such as Cal by Bernard MacLaverty & Death & The Maiden by Ariel Dorfman from Rumson Fair Haven’s Curricula and any other material that is not age appropriate. This material should be replaced with material that uses age appropriate language & situations. In addition, we ask that the administration institute a policy, whereby parents must sign a permission slip if assigned reading material, films or any media contains profanities, explicit sexual passages or vulgar language such as Fuck, Twat, Tits, Dick, etc. Theses words and sexual excerpts that are explicit in nature and describe encounters that include orgasms, “shot wetly” or otherwise overtly excessive language require a permission slip similar to the permission slips that are currently used if students are exposed to certain foods in science labs.
We, the undersigned are concerned parents of RFH, and urge our Board Of Education and Administration to take immediate action on the removal of the above inappropriate material and all inappropriate material and institution of new policy of permission slips:
