The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a novel that should still be read by all American high school students because of the history, characterization, and Twain’s remarkable growth as a writer. History is important to students everywhere, and Huckleberry Finn is most definitely an example of history. Many people believe that the novel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn ruins the minds of students and that they would “go astray” because of the language, including the “n” word; what many people do not realize is that Twain was using the language that people from that day used.
For example, young adults are being told how their lives are going to turn out. If they aren't smart enough, they won't be able to go to college, or since they are a troublemaker they aren’t going to go anywhere in life. In Anthem they are being told and it is predicted what they are going to do for the rest of their lives. Anthem is giving young adults a great objective to connect to because it shows how the people in the novel are being isolated from people all around them. A lot of teens feel like they are isolated from people in school because they fear either that they don't fit in or their classmates don't like them for some reason.
Fahrenheit 451 is ironically banned in many schools, but why would someone ban a book that promotes individuality and respecting knowledge? Fahrenheit 451 emphasizes on important topics that every teen should have the possibility to learn and read about. The main theme that is primarily connected to this book is censorship. In Fahrenheit 451 Ray Bradbury makes it a point that regular people aren 't allowed to read books. I think it is important for teens to read this book because it allows the readers to see how important it is for people to stand up for what they think is good for them, even if it isn 't accepted by society.
Some books are frequently banned in schools because they contain explicit content; however, some people argue that these very same books are worth reading because books were made to be read and teach us a lesson. Harry Potter has been banned in schools around the world because of the topic of witchcraft. J.K Rowling
Sedaris felt that if others knew what was going on with a person as strange as him, than others would learn that it is ok to do their own weird tics. It is also important to note that when “A Plague of Tics” took place he was in grade school and then later college. This would imply for this essay that he was writing towards people in a similar context. This essay would relate most to all the problems in the world going on with bullying. It isn’t a surprise that someone such as Sedaris got frowned upon by others for not conforming quite like the
When school libraries ban books students are left with books about only positive things and an unrealistic picture of the world. If a book like To Kill a Mockingbird is banned students lack the intelligence about such topics taught in the book. To Kill a Mockingbird teaches about bravery, the real world, treating others with respect, and many other things. If a student is never exposed to this he or she will not know about racism or other unfair and unjust things in the world. If students are “protected” from real world situations they will not succeed in life.
Speaking to Holly O’Mahony of the Guardian, Dewar-Langridge scoffs at people who say that young prisoners do not deserve an education because they’ve already committed crimes. For Dewar-Langridge, education is the best choice for rehabilitating young male offenders, prevent more crimes from being committed, and allow them to become important members of the community. She said that most of the young offenders have had negative experiences at school. This means that it’s going to be a tough challenge engaging them in an educational background they did not choose for themselves.
It was the day that I’ve been waiting for over 3 years. A day that would finally let me be normal like everyone else and have the choices as other people without being ridiculed by the teachers that saw me as unqualified to be taught in a standard way. Thanks to my mom thinking that it would be a marvelous idea to have me be placed in special education due to my lack of effort taking reading comprehension test.

That day would eventually come on early April of 2015, where I was called upon to the office during class in 8th grade.
