Reader's View: When we read, we gain understanding
Through reading, we are exposed to thoughts and opinions to help us form our social and worldly views, from which we can better understand who we are as humans. The Duluth school district's decisive banning from classroom reading and instruction of Mark Twain's "The Adventures of...
