Is this what students should hear about reading?
"Comic books are useless."
"Classics are the only books with any value."
"Don't read 'Mad Magazine.'"
"For summer reading, only read non-fiction. "
"The book Gossip Girl? Absolutely not."
Who decides what students should read? Read this article I wrote for Education Week a while back to get one person's view on the subject.
