Speaking of soon-to-be out-of-work superintendents...

In Michigan:

Some Salem High students and their parents were surprised when the novel Waterland was pulled from an advanced-placement English class last week. Jeremy Hughes, Plymouth-Canton Schools' interim superintendent, said he made the decision without following district rules, because he was "personally shocked and offended" by the book. He said one parent complained and he thought the novel, by celebrated author Graham Swift, would upset others.

According to the article, Hughes' supa-fast book killing skillz have not gone over well with other parents in the district.
