Several books have been banned because they are pro-communists. People don’t think that this topic should be allowed for their children to read in schools. But the champion among challenged or banned books is probably “Catcher in the Rye”: “obscene,” “blasphemous and undermines morality,” “centered around negative activity,” “anti-white,” “a filthy, filthy book” (What Are You Doing for Banned Books Week?).

Many argue that schools should not teach To Kill a Mockingbird due to another reason: lying about rape. Many call this novel “immoral literature because the plot is centered around rape” (Selk). According to Alice Randall, this novel “...encourages boys and girls to believe women lie about being raped.” This could cause young adults to neglect many “Believe the Victim” movements occuring today (Randall).

We no longer have freedom of speech in America out of fear of offending someone. These issues are not covered by the media so many people don’t believe that America is being censored. Many people are being fired or suspended because the words that were spoke by that person were to offensive for the other persons taste.

Paula dean was fired from the food industry because of something she said 30 years ago, Chick-Fil-A was boycotted because their views weren’t the same as others, Brendon Ike was fired because of a few words that he said on social media, it seems like everything that is said or done offends someone in some way.
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, why this book written by Mark Twain should be on the banned books list in schools and why it is too mature for it’s students. This book is full of situations that honesty students are not able to handle, leaving inappropriate impressions about racism and how to treat people and is going to cause teenagers and young adults to repeat the language and personalities seen in this, to other groups of this century that are fitting now The problem with Adventures of Huckleberry Finn isn’t that it is a bad book, not that maybe it is poorly written or isn’t a learning experience.

Students in high school already are expected so much of.

The primary decision is to determine if the item brought in as an artifact to enhance her report on the history of her home was in violation of the zero-tolerance policy. The parents of an elementary student demand that something is done about the student who brought a gun to school.

The public are banned from owning or reading books, there are many reasons for why people are so averse towards books and submit to the government. Entertainment such as, tv and radio play a big part in why most people do not independently think for themselves.The bigger reason is the sensitivities towards the “offensive” opinions written in these books that makes people submit to the goverments rules. This makes one either obey the authority and seeing what can happen to the world if they chose to let it stay the same or disobeying authority for change. Very much alike the recent occurrences where some college students have been rejecting the books they were given and are requesting new books and passages that are not offensive for the end result of softening and changing dated learning. On the other hand, there are new rules that are trying to make penitentiary’s “safer”, though adding specific approved “respectable” books for the prisoners to read and taking away their personal input on information.
What could you, as an administrator (if anything) do to mitigate the response? Speaking from a parental lens I would be concerned if I learned that my child’s teacher was convicted of a DUI on several occasions. I would be concerned of the safety and wellness of my student’s education and would demonstrate apprehensiveness towards field trips. As a parent you do what ever is necessary to protect your child. One of the scariest moments as a parent was when I dropped my child off to school on her first day of kindergarten.

Facts of the Case: Earl versus the Board of Education was a Supreme Court case in 2002 where high school students and their parents disliked the action of The Student Activities Drug Testing Policy taking place in an Oklahoma School District.
