opinion: re author's purpose

Clip to ScrapBook #1

My first graders and I read a safe-pigs version of "The Three Little Pigs," followed by the full-on version, in which the wolf eats the first two pigs and the pig ultimately eats the wolf. After we spent about two weeks carefully looking at the structure and story elements, we talked about how diverse fairy tales can be when retold by various authors. We looked at the differences between the two versions and, ultimately, discussed how the pigs were really young adults (or personality types) and the Wolf actually represents danger, and how the author's message was to plan ahead and be prepared. Be aware.

My admin. thought that this was not appropriate for inner-city first graders.
I am baffled.

May I please have your opinions?
