A novel that had raised concerns because its teen protagonist deals with the aftermath of rape will be added to the core literature list for Temecula's high schools, trustees decided. But school board members also decided to review later this year parents' ability to opt out of lessons and readings that deal with sensitive subjects. The Temecula Valley Unified School District board voted 4 to 1 on Tuesday to add "Speak" by Laurie Halse Anderson to the list of books that may be taught in high school English classes.

A proposal to place a novel whose teen protagonist is raped and considers suicide on a reading list for high school students is raising concerns among Temecula school district trustees. The school board is expected to decide Tuesday whether to allow the book, "Speak," by Laurie Halse Anderson, to be taught in sophomore English classes. The book first came before the board in August, but trustees delayed action after they heard a summary of the plot, which involves a teenage girl dealing with the aftermath of getting drunk at a party the summer before her freshman year and being sexually assaulted by a senior.

Is the Bible a work of fiction or nonfiction? The question spawns genuine confusion. One thing is certain: Calling the Bible a work of fiction is a sure-fire way to rile up believers, particularly as we head into the “war on Christmas” season, when conservative Christians are on the lookout for anything that smacks of religious disrespect. Last week in Simi Valley, a social-media savvy pastor, Caleb Kaltenbach of Discovery Church, was in Costco, looking for a gift for his wife.

A 14-year-old girl at Temecula Valley High School was raped in a restroom stall during school hours Tuesday, an attack that has terrified students and led to increased police patrols on the suburban campus, authorities said. The ninth-grader was taking a bathroom break during second period when a male attacker forced her into a stall, said Riverside County sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Earl Quinata. The attacker, possibly another student, sexually assaulted her, then fled the campus, Quinata said.
