Censorship of Writing by Parents

Books are important and necessary for a child to begin shaping ideas and interpreting the world around them. Books given to youth typically can’t be too controversial, however, some controversy and varied ideas are needed for a child to form a heathy world view. Allowing parents to eliminate an idea from school libraries that they don’t personally agree with compromises the learning of students for the beliefs of the parents. Varying ideas and belief help children see the world as more than a fight of “right vs wrong”and instead promotes the idea that different doesn’t always mean bad.
