Keep "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian" by Sherman Alexie to stay on the Sophomore curriculum.

This literary work must remain in the curriculum because it is an honest represtentation of Native custom, life, and tradition. Regardless of culture, nationality, race, creed or origin, we all are able to identify with Alexie's description of teenage alientation and angst.

Young Junior is a 9th grader that transfers from his reservation highscool on the Spokane Indian reservation to the border town that some would call a "white school". Through this piece of Literature the realism of reservation life is brought forward and truthfully speaking with the keen eye of experience.

 

Letter to
Bilings Public Schools
Keep "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian" by Sherman Alexie to stay on the Sophomore curriculum.
