Artistic performances too mature for children?

This year has been a challenging one for the children in our public school system artistically. The Theater Arts department and the orchestra both are presenting pieces that are from adult-only themed cable shows. Parents have complained.

The middle school orchestra is playing music from a cable show that's been accused of being pornographic and covering taboo topics. It's rated TV-MA.

The play is based on a Broadway musical that carried PG-13 rating when played in theaters.

What do you think?

Re: Artistic performances too mature for children?

I think the teachers either didn't think things through or have lost their mind.

Isn't it sad how numb society has become that they forget that there are things that are inappropriate for children? What has been the reaction of the school administration to the parent complaints?

I remember having to get special permission slips from parents to go with our class to see the movie Romeo and Juliet (with an on-screen kiss!) when we were studying it in high school. LOL.

Re: Artistic performances too mature for children?

Administration ignored the complaints. I think the world has lost its collective mind!

I read this in my local newspaper today:
Proposed 'sex-positive' venue in Tacony raises neighbors' confusion, skepticism


Quote:
As of Wednesday, only two tenants used the first floor: the Tacony Community Development Corporation and a daycare.

<snip>

On weekdays, the center would hold movie and game nights, as well as sex-themed classes. Social gatherings for some experimental subgroups would be held on the weekends.
It IS a sex club for alternative sexual preferences and fetishes. What could possibly go wrong with a sex club being operated above the daycare???

Re: Artistic performances too mature for children?



The part I found hardest to believe is that the article only mentioned in an "Oh, btw" way that the building is home to a daycare. There was nothing else said, no daycare parents interviewed, no employees of the other tenant interviewed. It seems like the author of the article only interviewed (or quoted anyway) people who were fine with it. "This neighborhood has prostitutes, drug needles littering the streets, so a sex club can't hurt." Oh my.
