Reaction Paper

 Recently the Biloxi school banned the book “How To Kill A Mockingbird” from the 8th-grade program this was a decision by the school. Students and parents are not happy with this and say they should put it back. So in this paper, you will see my reaction to this event.

The book “How To Kill A Mockingbird” by Nelle Harper Lee that was published in 1960, was banned from the 8th-grade program because of the language in the book. The article states that the book was removed from the 8th-grade program because of the use of the ‘N’ word. The school says that is inappropriate for this age and that is why it is band from the school. The article also says that it is the worst type of censorship they have ever seen. I disagree, I think they should not ban the book and let the 8th graders read it. All the school is doing is stopping the kids from learning.

I think that the school did not make the right choice of banning “How to Kill a Mocking Bird”. What the school is doing is stopping there learning and they said the book would not be replaced so this makes it even worse for the students. In the article, it states that the book was band because of the “N” word they say this is the worst type of censorship they have ever seen. So, I think they should bring back “To Kill A Mocking Bird” because it is offensive to the author and the people who read it.

“How to Kill a Mocking Bird” is a book that many people have read it is a very good book, but banning the book is just unthinkable. This is why censorship can be bad. It stops kids from learning about the book, it changes the way they think  and causes the people who read the book to be offended. So next time you read a banned book think of why it was band.
