An Arizona school district has pulled from its reading list a sexually explicit novel that is recommended as an “exemplar text” in the Common Core Standards. Parents and community members at Buena High School in Sierra Vista, Arizona expressed concern about the novel Dreaming in Cuban by Cristina Garcia.

Romo said she was told the “exemplar texts” are intended to show the correct reading level and are not recommendations for purchase.
