Principal troubled by Netflix tale romanticizing suicide

The doubtful nature of popular entertainment seems never more serious than 13 Reasons Why, a Netflix series about the suicide of a teenager. Edmonton principal Azza Ghai has sent email sent to parents this week warning them kids at St. Vincent Elementary School are talking about the series a lot. Ghali asks parents to tell their children not to talk about the show with their classmates. What kids watch at home is up to the parents, Ghali says in the email. But she wanted to let them know “many students are watching and discussing this” at school. “The discussion that is unfolding at school is troubling,” the email says. “Please let your child know that discussion of 13 Reasons Why is not permitted at school due to the disturbing subject matter.”  New Netflix Series Raises Concerns Over Teen Suicide
