Book Banning I think that the root problem with the book banning/burning was the level of maturity in the certain individuals affected. Both of these books were not made for children. I think the people in charge that banned Mr Vonnegurt’s book could have done better with their solution and the people at the Biloxi school came up with an adequate solution to the problem. An example is the book by Kurt Vonnegut, but they were still taught in the classroom. Then the directors of the school destroy his work of art because it was not kid friendly, even though they were the ones to put it into the school curriculum.

St. Jude’s Children Hospital gives a great amount of largesse by never making a family pay for a child’s cancer treatment.

The science teacher asked the class to substantiate their arguments on the Universe using an appropriate, scientific source. The new boy who had just moved to the United States was very taciturn for the first semester of school because he didn’t know anyone.

It didn’t come out from the tree. I didn’t get that money tree that was planted in my yard because it was already dead.” During high school, Michelle didn’t pay very good attention during school. She states that it was the biggest mistake that everyone makes. “There’s a reason for you to go to school, not only for you to learn everything, but it gives you life lessons.” She calmly states. “ Everything you go through might be the happiest time, the baddest time, the homework that you forgot to do or didn’t do because you wanted to do something else,” she chuckled.
You had to get a certain amount of points to get a good grade in the class. This system was supposed to be a way to encourage us beginning middle school students to read, we were supposed to be excited about competing against each other and about the (pointless) rewards, but the opposite is what actually happened. No, we didn’t all band together and stage a revolt, but it made virtually all of us turn against reading and everything it stood for. It was stressful, and, to me at least, was the most horrible thing a teacher had ever asked me to do. It disgusted me and ruined English class for me for a good three years

Can you imagine teachers today telling kids that they should not be learning? To Kill a Mockingbird really shows how much everything has changed in 80 years. People back then had a lot of beliefs have dissolved over the years and improved our world.

I had learned about the Kumeyaay and Sutter’s Mill in California. Scared to bring home failing grade, but even more scared to be viewed as the new girl who couldn’t hold her own, I remained silent. My freshman year I failed a Spanish quiz. I wanted to get up and tell my teacher that I had never heard of the subjunctive tense before and despite my quiz grade, I deserved to be in the class he so adamantly suggested that I switch out of. But I didn’t.
