Why is To Kill a Mockingbird banned? Many people have come to realize that the award winning To Kill a Mockingbird was banned and challenged countless times. Although there are several offensive scenes in the book, very many people are outraged that their child cannot read this award winning novel. The question is, why is this novel banned? 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.
Because of this challenge to the book, the principal decided that all questionable content regarding student curriculum will be disclosed to parents beforehand. In 2003, the book was challenged and then completely banned in George County, Mississippi. The copious amounts of profanity and sexual content lead to this unfortunate conclusion. “Using profanity was against school policy and having the book in the library made newly elected school board member, Larry McDonald, feel uncomfortable.”

Eminem was so severely bullied in his public school that his mother went and sued the local school board for “failing to sufficiently protect her child” so the fact that his mum had to sue the local school goes to show that his time at school wasn 't the best and like tupac, had a difficult early life. Another achievement which eminem received was When “Lose Yourself” won the Academy Award for Best Original Song, however Eminem was not there to accept the award, he was asleep during the ceremony because he believed he would not win. The fact that he was asleep whilst the ceremony was on shows how much faith he had in himself and this can be for a number of reasons but the main one being how much people put him down in his youth age and therefore made him have no faith in himself and that 's why he believed he would have no chance

Although the aftermath of the hurricane was the most difficult, it definitely had some pros to it, for example, I met a lot of people to hang out with that I did not know that live so close to me.

According to Tyler Carter, “Right now with the block grants I just don’t see that being proper funding for schools,” said Janet Cathcart. The school is wasting so much
To support this, Alexandra Ossola from Brooklyn, New York, reported to The Atlantic that, “The study, published recently in the journal; Frontiers in Psychology, focused on students in two elite East Coast high schools, a population that has received surprisingly little research attention. The researchers surveyed and interviewed 128 students, teachers, and administrators about students; stress levels and coping strategies. They found that 49 percent of students reported feeling ‘a great deal of stress’ on a daily basis. Half reported doing three or more hours of homework per night, and 26 percent noted that they had been diagnosed with depression-over four times the national average of 6 percent.” This evidence proves that homework has become a major health problem because homework has caused these students to have lots of stress, and some have gotten depression. In addition, Sylvian Duval, from the Institute for Knowledge Mobilization, reported to Center For Advancing Health (CFAH) that, “Only about 8 percent of high school students get enough sleep on an average school night, a large new study finds.
