To Ban or Not to Ban
I don't think it is necessary to ban books. Everybody should be allowed to read what they want even though other people might not agree with the topic, point of view, or belief. I do think that certain topics shouldn't be in elementary schools even if it might be written at lower reading level. For example, "Black-eyed Suzie" is written at an elementary reading level, but the topic is about child abuse. I believe if a book has received alot of concerns or complaints from a parent, it should have a note warning the parent or student. That's how I feel about banning books.
