Wow, I can’t even begin to make sense of these school officials rational. Its absurd that they are banning words on the basis that they might offend someone. How can children become well diverse when they can’t even learn about the different religions or the history that has shaped the world? Furthermore, how are children going to react to these words and ideas when they finally do encounter them in the “real world”? Will they think all of these words always have bad connotations? I believe John Milton, the author of Paradise Lost, best expresses this issue when he says that censorship only injures the truth and that truth will always prevail in the end. These same principals can also be related back to the early Socrates. The schools are undoubtedly restricting the students’ 1st amendment rights as well as limiting their success in the future. This problem also puts a lot of emphasis on parenting. Not every child is graced with perfect parents who have good views and morals to the real world. If children had to rely on their parents to learn about basic academic knowledge, many kids would struggle greatly. Anyways, I hope this is a “no-brainer” for people. Schools shouldn’t have the authority to simply not teach subjects they feel aren’t necessary, like history, or public safety. Now more than every, we want children to be well diverse and able to think for themselves. How do we expect any progress from them if they cant learn from the mistakes of our past?
