A high school in Sully Buttes, SD and Owen, NC both challenged Lord of the Flies in 1981 because the book is, “demoralizing in as much as it implies that man is little more than an animal.” Another high school from Marana, AZ challenged Lord of the Flies in 1983, “as an inappropriate reading assignment.” An independent school district from Olney, TX challenged Lord of the Flies in 1984 because of,” excessive violence and bad language.” Finally, the Toronto, Canada Board of Education ruled on June 23, 1988, says that Lord of the Flies is “racist and recommended that it be removed from all schools.” Parents and members of the African-American community complained about a reference to "niggers" in the book and said it denigrates African-Americans (“American Library Association”). Lord of the Flies should not be banned because this book teaches many life lessons, like to not baby your kids or keep them unexposed to the outside world. These kids were lost and didn’t know what to do, they believed in ghost and they chose their leader solemnly on looks (“SparkNotes”). They judge people like Piggy because he’s fat and wears glasses. Finally, this book portrays a dystopia of no government, order, or civility, which leads to savagery.
Unfortunately, Mr. Pickering was removed from his teaching position but he did not stop fighting for his case. (Secunda 2010) The appellant, Marvin Pickering, then requested the review of the Board's action in the Circuit Court of Will County, Illinois, which declared his dismissal on the grounds that his letter was detrimental to the interests of the school system.

They asked the courts to overrule the school’s decision to punish the students for wearing the armbands. The district court dismissed the case, and the students appealed the decision which took the case to the federal court of appeals. The federal court agreed with the district court so the students took their case the U.S Supreme Court. In Goss v. Lopez, Dwight Lopez was suspended along with 75 other students were suspended for a disturbance in the lunch room that resulted in damage to
The Supreme Court ruled in the 1943 case West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette that school officials violated the First and Fourteenth Amendments when they punished students and their parents for the students’ refusal to salute to the American flag. During the 1940s, the United States Supreme Court discussed two cases in which the majority disputed with the rights of individuals. In the first case, Minersville School District v. Gobitis, the court ruled that all students had to recite the Pledge of Allegiance while saluting the flag in the classroom. However, the Supreme Court faced the same issue three years later in West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette and was against a state school order that public school students must participate in a patriotic ceremony. The issues of the Barnette case stemmed from the decision of the Minersville School District v. Gobitis case.

After Frederick quoted Thomas Jefferson which led him to get a ten day suspension from school which he tried to appeal to the Juneau School Board who upheld the suspension.

He sought after a declaratory relief, injunctive relief, as well as monetary awards. The United States District Court for the District of Alaska dismissed Frederick’s case on summary judgment.
