Ender’s Game Complaint

A teacher at Schofield Middle School in Aiken County, South Carolina has been placed on administrative leave after a 14-year old student and his parents complained that the teacher read pornographic material to them. According to the student’s complaint, the teacher read from three works which the student found in appropriate, including Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game. After learning that the school was going to handle the matter internally, the family filed a complaint with the police department, when the school failed to notify under a South Carolina law requiring police notification whenever there is a possibility of criminal activity.
