'Hurtful' Harper Lee and Mark Twain dropped from Minnesota curriculum

Tuesday 10:51 GMT

A school district in Minnesota has pulled To Kill a Mockingbird and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn from its curriculum, arguing that the classic novels’ use of racial slurs risked students being “humiliated or marginalised”.

In 2017, schools in Mississippi removed Harper Lee’s novel over its “uncomfortable” and racially sensitive subject matter, although it was later returned to an “optional” reading list.
