Compton School District Speaks Out About Porn Star Reading To Kids

COMPTON (CBS) — Nearly a week after porn star Sasha Grey read to a first grade class at a Compton elementary school, the district is finally speaking out.

The Compton Unified School District said in a statement released Monday, “Last week, an issue arose because one of the participants, an actress who recently appeared on a hit HBO television show and previously worked in the adult film industry, was a reader on one occasion in the Emerson Elementary Guest Reading Program.”

The district initially denied that Grey read to the students after parents complained, but photos posted by TMZ proved otherwise.

The district now says they used a talent coordinator to book Grey, who was billed as a “mainstream actress from the HBO show, ‘Entourage.’”

Compton Unified says they will review how guest readers are selected in order to “safeguard against the invitation of any potentially controversial figures.”
