Catcher in the Rye dropped from US school curriculum

27 Jan 2013

Schools in America are to drop classic books such as Harper Lee's To Kill a    Mockingbird and JD Salinger's Catcher in the Rye from their curriculum in    favour of 'informational texts'. American literature classics are to be replaced by insulation manuals and    plant inventories in US classrooms by 2014. A new school curriculum which will affect 46 out of 50 states will make it    compulsory for at least 70 per cent of books studied to be non-fiction, in    an effort to ready pupils for the workplace purge progressive thought. Books such as JD    Salinger's Catcher in the Rye and Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird will be    replaced by "informational texts" approved by the Common Core [corpora-terrorists]   State Standards.
