Governor Snyder do you support porn in our schools?

Eric Owens,  Education Editor at the Daily Caller,  highlights the pornographic book “Dreaming in Cuban” in post titled, “Fifty Shades of the Common Core: how much porn is too much for high schoolers?”  The title is found in the Common Core appendix and read aloud in classrooms.

“Dreaming in Cuban” can be found on page 152 among the many recommended texts in a very lengthy Appendix B of the “Common Core Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects.”

You’ll have to go to the Daily Caller to read the disgusting  passage itself.   It’s not a question of how much is too much porn.  Eric Owens asks the correct question later in his piece,

What “Dreaming in Cuban” is doing tucked in the midst of various classics such as Ernest Hemingway’s “A Farewell to Arms” and Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town” is perhaps a question only Jeb Bush and Arne Duncan can answer.

I’m not interested in Jeb Bush’s or Arne Duncan’s asnwer.  I want to know Governor Snyder’s answer.
