Once a person under eighteen checks out one of the controversial books, there is a high chance they can learn something from it. If the town council were to remove these books, knowledge will be stolen from many patrons. Stealing the chance to learn from books just because a few parents are complaining about the subject material of the books, does not seem worth it. Other than patrons under eighteen, adults may wish to check out the unacceptable books. If the town council discarded
No books should ever be banned because for each book that is banned, there possibly could be one life lesson that will not be learned by the next generation. Censorship of books in schools and libraries is wrong for it limits what students can potentially learn. Books such as To Kill a Mocking Bird, Of Mice and Men, and others teach valuable life lessons, which is why they are considered classics. Books such as these are being banned for they have questionable material. In the same book introduction as the opening quote, Judy Blume wrote, “Those who were most active in trying to ban books cam from the ‘religious right’ but the impulse to censor spread like a contagious disease.
Books with artistic and cultural value are still challenged every day by those who want to control what others read. These people that put all their effort to censor books and free expression are unacceptable and unconditional. By censoring school books in libraries, our basic freedoms that are guaranteed in the First Amendment are violated. In other words, to be told what is were allowed to read and what is not is a direct defilement of the First Amendment, which states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances”(Asato, 287). The quote clearly states that the congress will not take away our freedom of speech.
In the course of discovery, the School Board members who voted to remove the books acknowledged that they had not read many of the books and that they removed them because they exposed students to the "religion of witchcraft." The ultimate questions: Do students have a right to read? Does book censorship violate the First Amendment and at the expense of who? As the final verdict on April 22, 2003, the Supreme Court ordered the return of the books back to library shelves. Background Information The Court cited the Tinker case and ruled that there was no evidence that reasonably showed substantial disruption or material interference with school activities if students were allowed unfettered access to the books.
Books are constantly being banned from all different places for all different reasons as well as from all age groups. Books are usually banned because of content such as profanity, sexual situations, or even witchcraft. But should they be banned to everyone just for these reasons? Books should not be banned to high school students and older. Student in high school are exposed to many different things, good and bad, as a part of growing up and maturing.
In the second paragraph, first, the living and learning should be distinguished, there are no connections between the two. Second, if the children go to school to learn, it will let him rely on someone help them to solve the problem, not to solve the problem by themselves. These are the thoughts of the author. In the third part of the passage, the opinion of the author is that the action of the children are limited, so it causes that the children is afraid to ask teacher question, so they are ashamed of it. And the school just want the right answer, and after learn many other things, they will be wrong , uncertain, confused.
Suspension and Expulsion are not of use to improve our schools! Suspensions and expulsions are both disciplines that are given to students for their disruptive behaviors and actions. Even our own principal in our school disagrees; suspension and expulsion should be used. (Dale) Suspension and expulsion are not the solution to the problem because too much of these two can lead to dropout rates, it causes negative behavior to students, suspension and expulsion can stop future crimes and learn from their actions and students are not learning properly and not gaining any benefit from their education. Suspension and expulsion is not an effective tool and solution in our schools because it can lead to dropout rates and other violent crimes in the future.
Your one of them aren’t you? One of the teenagers who can’t think for yourself online anymore and you’re too afraid to express your own opinion, because of peer pressure and this new “like” culture. You’re hiding behind this mask and not showing your true form online, because you might be ridiculed and un-accepted by everyone for sharing your opinion. You should be focusing on school, homework and just living, not getting addicted to tweeting or updating your Facebook status. Those tweets or statuses you make have to get enough “likes” or comments, or you won’t “belong” or “be popular”.
Thought the poem also talks about how children see the world how they want to see it. If they still want to believe the myths, then they will. Also, the idea that adults will always try to protect children's eyes and prevent them from seeing what the world i actually like, that it doesn't have all those fairytales in it, but yet one day they will and have to find out that the world isn't really like that. The speaker in the poem uses verbal irony to explain the bullies in the history class. When the author separates "and the smart" in line 16, he emphasizes that the children in his class are not smart since they are not learning the correct information.
While reading the article one of the more noticeable things is the list on the front page. The list consists of a few of the things that Amy Chua’s children were and were not allowed to do, things such as attending sleepovers, be in their school play and get any grade less than an A. By western standards, any of these things would seem almost ludicrous. Why would you not allow your children to be part of their school play if they so wish? While western parents argue that, stressing academic success is not good for children (ll.
