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.
It just made him even more depressed than he already was. The Catcher in the Rye should be taught in schools because discussing the book with classmates and teachers helps bring out the deeper meaning in the book. We all have to recognize our problems and be there for each other, otherwise we’ll end up like Holden. Denying teachers from being able to discuss the book in a class setting, teenagers would miss the point and would think Holden was a foul person and had no
In “Ban Cell Phones in Schools”, Joe Smith argues that students should not bring cellphones to schools, because students will be distracted and addiction both it in class and out of class, and it will cause students’ academic failure and parents’’ complains about teachers. Also, parents can contact with staff in school if there are emergencies. However, Smith’s argument is wrong, because school have attractive activities to participate, teachers and students can control the time playing with phones, and school staff cannot accompany with students anytime. First of all, school work is not as boring as what Smith said, there are many interesting and appealing activities both in class and out of class. Students will acquire knowledge and have fun in school without playing cellphone.
Ever wonder why a certain website or page just won’t open? This could happen for many reasons but the most likely reason is that that page is being restricted or filtered, whether it be because of an inappropriate page or could show certain things not suitable for children. Many schools and parents at home try to protect their students or children from witnessing inappropriate things on the internet or prevent young children from going on dangerous or unsuitable sites. Many argue that having restrictions on the internet could interfere with a child’s learning, or overblock sites that could be useful but seen as inappropriate by the filters or restrictions, but internet filtering isn’t just to help students with education but in the way they
To Kill a Mockingbird should still be taught in school systems, and should not be a banned book because the novel focuses on a part of history that should not be ignored. Just because history is harsh and not always the most pleasant thing to learn about, does not mean that we can ignore it. Kenya Down with PBS said, “Being uncomfortable with history is not means to change it; people need to figure out how to confront issues.” Down also mentioned how Lee’s book is one of the most banned books

Be that as it may, there are multiple reasons why books should be taught and included in a curriculum. If you really want a book not to be read by an adolescent, banning the book will often have an opposite effect. Although it contains sensitive topics and harsh language, The Secret Life of Bees should not be banned in high schools because students are not only mature enough to handle these issues but should, in fact, be exposed to them in an educational environment to help in the development of their maturing minds. Being exposed to course language at too early an age can often have negative effects on adolescent development. Profanity is inappropriate in a school setting so why should students be assigned to read a book that contains it?
In the article, Arguments Against School Uniforms, it says “ policies(dress codes) place limitations on freedom of expression…” This quote explains why most kids think dress codes are living nightmares. When all students look the same, it doesn’t let them express who they really are. Whenever kids wear what they want, they can express their personality through what they wear. On the contrary, the only problem about not having dress codes is that some kids bully each other for what they wear, which is totally unacceptable. Despite one disadvantage of not wearing uniforms, the advantages of not having dress codes greatly outweigh the bad sides.
Technology such as the electronic tablets schools are considering to purchase can cause many headaches, and use students time on things such as sitting on their bed with their device. Us humans are now addicted to our phones and laptops not realizing how much our world is changing around us. Thus, schools shouldn 't purchase electronic devices for each student.
