    This could be interpreted to mean one encourages ignorance over understanding.

    I see your point, but I think too many young people wind up very very surprised when they face the grown up world. I figure they ought to read both comedy and tragedy..

    In my high school 2 kids suicide'ed.

    The girl was despondent because her boyfriend dumped her for a cheerleader.

    And the boy had a psychotic reaction from the dope.

    Another boy was killed on his motorcycle in traffic. His parents should have given him a car instead.

    Children must be protected and guided not inundated with stress and tragedy.

    Shakespeare was not writing for American high school'ers.

    He was writing to impress the Queen and her court.

    Also X rated.

    I do not support brainwashing kids either as Catholics, Protestants, Eastern Orthodox, Muslims, or Jews.

    Buddhism is fairly safe however.

    That's where parenting and teaching comes in, to bridge that gap.

    I think on the whole, we've failed miserably.

    Yes. Though in many districts it is not officially banned.
