Extreme Sports Meets Rock & Roll

A story from a teacher in S.C. explaining why bad education is not his fault:

So, we are reading this story about a young kid who has a father that works at a mountain climbing school. The kid's name is Axel. In the story, the kid's dog gets trapped on a ledge and the kid climbs up and saves him.That's the background info.

Today, a teacher got a letter from a parentstating the following:"I really don't understand why you are subjecting our children to extremesports. In a time when safety is stressed and parents can't even have theircellphones on at school, this story is highly inappropriate."

My favorite part: "Who names their child Axel? Is he the lead singer ofGuns and Roses? I don't want my daughter subjected to that."
