I go to the New Rochelle High School and the books they give us is not what I call good reading. The PARENTS should have the decision on what books the students should read not the school board, if they do give the parents that they shouldn’t give them a list let the parents choose what books are appropriate and good in literature A.K.A. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer, that book has excellent foreshadowing and giving excellent feelings and strong thoughts about the book, the stuff they give us A.K.A. Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. That book is so dry that i can pour water on it and it will turn to dust. There is not a lot of good foreshadowing or something to pull the reader in. My English teacher (not going to mention names) tells us that the book has great foreshadowing and stuff like that. The school district gets (very very very rough estimate) $96,000 dollars for books and they give us the old not good foreshadowing, don’t get me wrong I would like to read Romeo and Juliette, that book/script has some good foreshadowing, well what can we do the school district “thinks” they know whats best for us. Well I think there wrong I think there is time for change in the school board, There needs to be drastic measures.
