A Schofield Middle School teacher embroiled in a controversy after reportedly reading to his students from a science fiction book that one parent described as “pornographic” will not face criminal charges, police said.
Aiken Public Safety officials said the teacher did not do anything criminal, and the police investigation is closed.
The teacher, if you recall, read excerpts from Ender’s Game, The Devil’s Paintbrush, and Curtain: Poirot’s Last Case to a class of fourteen-year-olds. A parent complained that two of the books were pornographic and the teacher was placed on administrative leave. That still remains to be resolved.
But chalk one up for common sense by the police.
