No subject is too controversial for Carole Shakely-Parkman's 12th-grade English class at North High School in Torrance. Students discuss immigrant-bashing, homophobia, the Rampart scandal, the Napster controversy, physical abuse and the death sentence of journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal, who is accused of killing a police officer in Philadelphia. In fact, these topics are part of Shakely-Parkman's lesson plans--borrowed from LA Youth magazine.
