CENSORSHIP IN SCHOOL IS NOT RIGHT I believe that Imposing censorship within Americas schools is not only against the First Amendment of the United State Constitution but it is also against the very moral fiber upon which this country was founded In an attempt to limit access to so-called sensitive issues and concepts radical right wing supporters have pushed their weight around to remove any and all questionable works of literature from school libraries The right to interpret the written word is one of the fundamental freedoms of our country yet more and more this right is being taken away from students who have the desire to broaden their literary horizons Conservative parents teachers librarians and even the American government have all attempted to limit access to what they consider sensitive issues and concepts These same self appointed literary police are calling for the removal of all Questionable works of literature from public libraries On some college campuses there are even restrictions on which books can even be brought from ones own collection to school property Proponents of school censorship have issues with just about every book found in school libraries Their argument is that appropriate reading literature should fulfill by one of two standards 1 that it effectively adds to the general store of knowledge or 2 that is exercises some beneficial influence upon the mind as a means of providing wholesome amusement or recreation Who is to determine what constitutes wholesome and beneficial That is what I as a censorship opponent want to know Personal opinion is just that personal opinion When such opinions begin dictating how the rest of the world must respond it becomes a dictatorship rather than a democracy Giving credit where credit is due there is nothing wrong with offering guidance as to what is both proper and improper for students to read Depending upon the age group supervision over reading material
