Reading is one of the best exercises you can give your brain, which is why restricting this from so many students is very negative to their education. Books can heavily influence your thinking, most of the time for the better. Trying to filter out sources of knowledge from the children in our schools isn’t going to give benefit them. We should be able to reserve the right given to us in our first amendment, and not allow book challenges to keep being accepted.
Dear superintendent Kovalchic, I must inform you of an ever growing problem that I’m seeing in the Northampton Area School District. You see, there are these books in the libraries. “Harry Popper,” or some other nonsense like that. The evil of the books are cleverly disguised under a “cute” plot, about a little boy who goes to wizard school. What the books don’t explicitly tell you however, is how the “Hogtarts school of Wizardry” is actually a blatant excuse for the book to preach its satanic undertones to the reader.
Kids are running around, practically possessed by this demonry! They’re constantly casting spells at each other and performing hexes on their teacher. Why, just yesterday, my neighbor was telling me about how a local boy hit his sister with a fireball! How preposterous of an idea is that!
The intentions of this book are totally and absolutely sacrilegious, which is why I am requesting one simple thing of you. That you immediately remove this filth from our school’s library. In this way, you will be able to demonstrate the correct and holy ways to our children.
Thank you in advance,
