By examining the profanity, racial content, and references to rape, it’s deemed inappropriate for teens to read and is banned from several school libraries and lessons in school. Does the moral lesson of the story outweigh the so called inappropriate content of the book? Many people would agree with me if I said that To Kill a Mockingbird has a lesson in the story that every child should read and learn
Banning books has always been a big debate if it’s acceptable or not in the field of language arts… most Americans believe people should have the freedom to choose what they want to read. By banning books, our basic rights as US citizens are kind of taken away. Book banning affects the people who read books to the people who write them. I feel that most people banned or try to ban books because they want to protect others from different ideas and information. Banned books are basically books that are thought to be “unsuited” for their intended age group and are therefore challenged by parents to be removed from a school or any local library shelf.
The government in the book had been brainwashing their citizens into believing books were bad for society and were constantly distracting them.

Books are an essential way to gain knowledge whether they are controversial or not. Thousands of books have been banned from public libraries and schools due to being deemed ‘inappropriate’ by parents, administrators, or religious leaders. Whether Americans should ban books in public libraries and schools is an often debated topic. This censorship of books is dangerous, as it restricts the American people's’ ability to access information, leaving Americans ignorant. Historically, banning books is not a new practice.
Censorship of books is common and a real problem. Censorship is another word for banning, the government/libraries/schools are keeping these books away from the public. Students should be able to read what they please, and they should not be stopped from doing
Banning books should be prohibited because each person should be able to read whatever they need to, or desire to. Also books should not be banned so everyone can gain knowledgeable history of the world. Some people believe books should not be banned because it’s taking away our rights as human beings, limits knowledge and takes away our upper hand on history. To begin, books should not be banned from libraries, schools or in the United States because
For example, the novel Fahrenheit 451 is a real book. Though the dystopian worlds and the modern American world, both have the existence of books, they treat the books differently. The society in the novel destroys books. The citizens do not like books because they think books cause everyone to be hurt by words in the them and that’s why the government wants to keep individuals away from it. “‘Do you ever read any of the books you burn?’ He laughed.
Children and teens should be able to access literature “free of restrictions” (70). Censors of young adult literature “fail to see” the similarities between their “desires to suppress information” about sexuality, violence, and religion and the “successful attempts by dictators to control their countries’ population” (70). Countries who have tried to implement censorship are practicing control over their citizens, which is why Canada should not suppress the population from any literature. If children are told they are not able to read books they are interested in or curious about they will be deterred from pursuing leisurely reading which limits their intellectual
Some think that certain chapters of this book should be banned from the public eye. I disagree with this, citizens have the right to be able to read the works of their past leader and all of the sickening thoughts that went through his head.

Everyone Needs to Read Banned Books Banning challenged books from schools and libraries is wrong and is restricting students from seeing the real world. These challenged books can include many controversial subject matters, including sexual references, homosexuality, racial differences, alternative lifestyles and more. Though some of the reasons for banning books are understandable, they are not educating students on what they will see as they grow older and what they will encounter in reality.
