Reader's View: So many splendid books can be taught
Two of my favorite books of all time are "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn." Almost half a century after I graduated from high school, I still quote from these important books. I try to imagine being a girl with darker skin reading these same stories. Each...

Reader's View: Banning books doesn't help healing
The Lake Superior Freethinkers is an organization in Duluth that stands for, among other things, free thought. Thus, we seldom take positions on political issues.

Reader's View: Rejecting classics ignores changing times
I found it interesting the Duluth public schools banned from classrooms "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" because of unacceptable language. This is ignorance of an undisputed truism of history: that attitudes change, and we must recognize them and make...

Reader's View: Hard to believe this happened in Duluth
I was dismayed to hear of the removal of two great literary works from the curriculum of the Duluth public schools, "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn." There seemed to be very little community debate. Harper Lee, the author of "To Kill a Mockingbird,"...

Reader's View: Duluth honors black history by whitewashing it
While I wish I could applaud the Duluth school district's decision to update an archaic curriculum by removing "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" and "To Kill a Mockingbird" from its English classes, the reasons for doing so should embarrass any self-respecting educator.

Reader's View: Don't replace classic literature
As reported by the News Tribune Feb. 7, Duluth schools are removing from classrooms the classics "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" and "To Kill A Mockingbird." What? Is that perhaps so that youngsters can fill their minds with today's lesser literary icons like Stephen King and...
