Censorship in schools

By definition censorship is, the removal, suspension, or restricted circulation of literary, artistic, or educational materials. Most parents want censorship in schools, because they don’t want their children being taught the exact opposite of what they preach at home. Also many people believe that young kids aren’t good at making decisions for themselves and they don’t always know right from wrong. So schools need to have censorship to filter out all the bad stuff and only teach students good values. Censorship gives parents peace of mind and shape the minds of our youth.  

There are still plenty of people who don’t like the idea of censorship in schools. Lots of people believe that censorship isn’t allowing students to form their own ideas. If you don’t allow students to form their own ideas then it’s hard for society to have different views on things. The court system would have to agree with these people, they tend to vote with the schools most of the time limiting censorship in schools and allowing students to become free thinkers. As long as schools don’t cross any religious boundaries, or are trying to push political views on students then the court will allow it.

One thought on “Censorship in schools”

  1. I completely agree with the court that schools should be limiting censorship. Schools are right to be censoring certain things like, sex, drugs, and alcohol, but what they should not be censoring are things like language or some art that may be nude. Also, when they censor these things they do it as a whole even though part of the subject may be educational for the students. When the schools limit the types of art because it inst “appropriate” they are losing part of education that these students may be getting. Students deserve to think freely without so many limitations. Once students think free we will be able to see what kind of student they will be.
