Man fu*k our education system. They're just breeding the youth to be obidient slave, without imagination and creativity. And while im at it, fu*k the government for allowing this.

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.
Thats not it at all. The point of school curriculum is to give a basic knowledge and undertanding of certain subjects to students. Lets be honest, not everyone reads for whatever reason. So taking it out of the curriculum could mean permanently taling it out of these kids' lives

No where in the article is there any evidence for Catcher in the Rye and To k!ll a Mockingbird being explicitly removed, in fact the only person who mentions those books is the journalist himself. The only thing stated is that fiction books will be to a degree replaced by non-fiction books. That's it.

This talk about the two books in particular being removed is journalistic spin. Find me a quote, that's not from the journalist, that says that. I've just looked and I can't find one. All I can see is journalists spinning a change in education to try and fuel outrage amongst British conservatives.

All you people lambasting the education should maybe scruitinise what you read more closely.

I enjoyed reading the book. Holden Caulfield is a name ill never forget.
I just hope they don't get rid of slaughterhouse five. Now that book changed my perspective on war back when I read it in high school

I was making parody of Holden. That's his syntax in the book.

But I truly do believe the curriculum is too rigid and mechanical overall. It almost forbids creative exploration. If your outlook or answers to questions doesn't fall in line with preconceived notions of what the expected answers are according to the teacher's belief system or the curriculum itself, then you're bound to do bad, speaking in terms of the more abstract of a.ssignments of course. Unless the teacher doesn't care at all about the cognitive progress of the students, and just passes them just because, both cases being detrimental for mental growth.

You do have a point though. No matter what happens, ppl are still going to put reading to the side, especially with TV and the net at bay. It's just that taking books like this out of the equation that's proven time and time again to be relateable to teens for generations is going to strengthen the allure of the less productive and noneducational forms of entertainment.

this is what american public schools have become. teaching kids to be good, obedient workers who aren't smart enough to question anything.
college is no different though... sh*t is on another level though. its all about just playing this game....

I'm all for teaching kids these days actual trades and skills at a required level vs. elective.. But if they can't replace books like this with "equals", FOH.

Oh sh*t you're right its been too long.

Yeah you have a point about creativity. Theres not much room left for that in our curriculum. You could argue that essay's allow for creativity, but not enough ppl enjoy writing enough(including me) to allow our creative side to take over. Its all about getting the a.ssignment done. And thats rewarded in our system

i didnt read
and idk if this is why theyre doing it
but that book is not for young teens i feel
i read that in 8th grade
i think thats a college book because that sh*ts way more about depression than simply "teen angst" as they frequently relegate it to
