I remember at the time reading these and being like fu*k school but as an adult I feel like this sh*t is needed to help cultivate young minds... Maybe 10 of 12 students hate it but maybe later 6 of those 12s look back like damn catcher wasn't too bad.. k!ll a mockingbird I loved tho.. If we lose the ability to reach kids thru some of the arts and creativity. We are shutting down early development and engagement of a whole pole of the brain.. T

But a lot of the kids who grew up hating this books are now policy makers who never just let it go and now want to get it out of school

n*ggas taking the classics out of the curriculum?

That's like stopping college students from reading Homer and Aristotle and Plato's The Republic.

fu*k is wrong with the system? It's a factory
Homer in college? I had to read both Iliad and The Odyssey in 3rd grade.

No point talkin' to 'em. They're all god damned phonies. All of them. And if you really wanna know, them sayin' it has to be read in school. That k!lls me. It can only be read if it's in the school curriculum. It's all so god damn phony.

so i guess people seem to think that school is the only place you can read books
for some children school is the only place they'll read because they're forced to

both those motherfu*king books are educational.

this is what i hate about school systems......you really think a kid is going to learn anything from reading an "informational" text? NO. why? it has little draw to their mindstate as teenagers. their minds will wander and they will only cram information before tests/quizzes

Both these books are great, one about growing up and one about race. but keep giving children boring textbooks instead of books they can relate too that in turn create social conscience and understanding....

Schools build workers, not bosses. The system is pretty fu*ked up. They make drones as opposed to making creative entrepreneur
