The Eanes ISD School Board has condoned the reading of the book "Call Me Max" to students as young as 3rd and 4th grades. Teachers showed to their students a You Tube video of a young child reading this book aloud. The book is about a young girl who believes she is a boy and her friend who is a boy who believes he is a boy but wears dresses. The content is wholly inappropriate to present at a public school setting, especially to students as young as 3rd and 4th grade. When parents objected after the fact, the District defended the teachers' actions. Nobody in the District told parents ahead of time that their children would be exposed to the book.
