In Episode 9, Joe and Rookie discuss the situation in the Duluth school district.
The desire to take ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ and ‘Huck Finn’ off of the required reading list is a joke. Joe reminds all African-American parents to not let others make these decisions for their children. Children of color should not have less expected of them. They should have the exact same expected of all students at all times. Even President Obama put together a message that said ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ was a classic and should be seen and read by all. When taken to task, these decision makers were not made available to talk about the subject on the air. What a shame.
