How are middle and high school students going to learn about history if they have to only read a text book? A great book is being censored or taken out of schools because it is “offensive”.
To Kill a Mockingbird is a great book and helps us learn history that isn’t in a textbook. To Kill a Mockingbird has a word that may be offensive in this age, but when the word was acceptable during the year that the book is set. This wonderful novel is set in 1935, when the word “N*****” was acceptable. How can we learn if we are restricted? You will never see the word “N*****” in a history book. So please, please think about it.
How can we restrict learning? Besides, English citizen (who supported America during the Revolutionary War), Edmund Burke once said “Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it”.
