This week the 5th graders and I discussed the idea of "The Freedom to Read" and how it relates to the First Amendment to the Constitution and our Bandelier Library. I love to hear thoughts on this topic. It's interesting to hear from the students what they think should and should not be banned from schools. They were mostly shocked at some of the books that made the list. Freedom of Speech comes with responsibility and that was a main point of our discussion as well.
Go read some banned books!
