teenagegrandfather replied to your post: i need to change my bedsheets so badly…

oh my god i was so pissed about the to kill a mockingbird thing

it’s just utterly ridiculous and COMPLETELY unnecessary. i don’t understand what could possibly have made gove make that decision. there’s literally no purpose to it apart from stupid fucking tory ideas about english nationalism and how ‘it’s a shame that they don’t study many english texts boo hoo hoo’ WE DON’T STUDY MANY ENGLISH CLASSIC TEXTS BECAUSE THEY’RE BLOODY DIFFICULT TO READ AND UNDERSTAND I MEAN HAS GOVE ATTEMPTED TO READ A DICKENS NOVEL, THEY’RE LONG AND EXTREMELY DESCRIPTIVE AND NOT THE MOST ENTHRALLING OF NOVELS

AMERICAN CLASSIC NOVELS ARE TYPICALLY MORE SIMPLY WRITTEN WITH EASIER LANGUAGE AND SHORTER CHAPTERS. MUCH MUCH BETTER FOR TEENS
