It's long been one of those things where you're on one side of the fence or the other. The topic of banning books. So many different reasons it's a hot topic. Ranging from censorship to the freedom of speech argument, they're all valid.

We've already seen a book ban go into effect at Canyon ISD recently, and now we've got another one teeing up it appears.

A teacher for Amarillo ISD spoke up on Reddit talking about how they're hearing that changes are coming to the campuses to limit things.

Now I know school districts already go through the books that go on the shelves of the school in the first place, so what is available to our kids is already relatively censored if you want to use that word. The very controversial stuff never sees the school libraries. It's not like you'll find a 50 Shades book available for your 6th grader to check out.

This begs the question, what are they possibly looking to ban from the schools now? One user commented book series like Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, and Harry Potter had already been banned in the Frisco school district.

Game of Thrones I might understand. I haven't read the books, but if they're anything like the show, I can understand keeping those out of schools. Lord of the Rings kind of caught me off guard, then someone mentioned the fact that marijuana is mentioned and there could be satanic undertones to them.

Harry Potter though? I mean, I let my oldest son start reading these books in 3rd grade. It's wizardry, sorcery, magic, etc. These types of books have been around for a LONG time, and unless your child has a different kind of mind or interpretation of them, I feel like those are completely safe. Just my opinion though.

Quite the conversation is being had on Reddit on this topic, and you can check it out here.
