But such is the case with many attempts to ban, censor, and challenge. Most arguments are about "protecting" kids. So, that begs the question in the headline: who should be in charge of deciding the books high school kids can read? Why do we not trust kids to make those selections? Why do we not petit a parent to object for her or his kid without turning this into a challenge that seeks to remove a book for all kids?
When educators do not allow for choice, censorship and challenges often spring up. Here is a lovely blog post about how to kill a love of reading in kids: http://www.brilliant-insane.com/2014/08/6-ways-teachers-kill-the-joy-of-reading.html.
One way to reduce censorship and challenges might be to provide more choice in reading materials. Instead of Choosy Mothers Choose Jif, why not make it Choosy Readers Choose for Themselves?
