The following article speaks of how education has been taken to a tad bit of an extreme. The Cactus Shadow High school, drama department had their students perform a play that was written by Edward Albee on a man that falls in love with a goat and performs sexual activities with it.
Many parents had contested to the play and were shocked that the school was letting their children perform such material. Many had took the matter into their own hands and had a parents meeting to raise the issue at hand. Some students had also raised their concerns about the play but had been outruled by all the other students that wnated to perform the play.
Parents feel that they need to be informed as to whta their children are learning and performing in schools becuase some of these things being taught in schools goes against the parents and home situtaion values.
Drama is an art that is meant to be expressed in all forms and it is crucial that parents understood the depth of drama as well as the children that sign up for it, to avoid any misunderstandings. However education has been taken to a whole new level in this play and not only does it affect thechildrens education it also raises awareness on animal cruelty.
