Book pulled from Curriculum? Here we go…

Haven’t we seen this movie before? Southern school district pulls extremely well known classic novel from the students curriculum to hide what has happened in the past? Didn’t they make a movie about something like that with John Lithgow and Kevin Bacon…and Sarah Jessica Parker too…remember Willard?!?

No for real though…this isn’t a movie! Some school district in Mississippi had pulled “To Kill a Mockingbird” from the 8th grade reading list! That’s a classic book and movie…so why would you hide it from upcoming teenagers? That’s like hiding Holden Caufield or Big Brother or the mice or the pigs! I mean come on!

Isn’t this how Fahrenheit 451 began? Come Mississippi! Do better.
