I'd like to preface this by saying that to me this is not a political or religious or any other kind of issue along those lines. So, I would like to not see this thread go in that direction. difficult child told me they had a session in the library today about banned books. They discussed the books that were "bad" (difficult child's term) and wanted the kids feedback on why they thought those certain books were banned, and their opinion of it. An example is, the Twilight Series was banned. First of all, I must be really naive because I thought banning books went out decades ago. I realize that school libraries have limited space and they can't accommodate every book, but outright banning books that are written for teens.... This is high school. Like I said, I must be really naive. Second, I'm not sure if this discussion was to get the kids to think intellectually, or if it was to persuade them that these books are bad, amoral, what have you. And it bothers me. I guess I'm going to have to call the school Monday and find out what the point of that discussion was because difficult child isn't sure and she sat through it.
