I'm honestly quite conflicted about this story. I understand why parents would be upset that a teacher assigned explicit rap lyrics as homework, but I can also imagine how challenging it must be to engage kids, and keep them interested in literature. This is the music they're listening to, right? I'm guessing they'd pay a lot more attention in a class focused on Lil' Wayne than they would if their teacher was talking about J.D. Sallinger. What do you think??
