If Sykes actually cared about the kids' reading material, she might see to it that they understand the basic subject books they are all issued, and pay more attention to that, LEARNING, as much as foolish opinionated drama. ANY books those kids read at this point cannot hurt them. Low grad rate, teen drinking, bullying, meth labs...I know it's easier to attack Alice Walker's masterpiece, but how bout DOING something instead of just stirring up crap. It won't be the kid who read Color Purple who breaks into your house, genius.
