Subject: RE: BS: New curricula in US schools?
PS: Not every work of "high literature" can or will speak to every reader. In fact, probably only a minority of them will speak to any individual.

That doesn't make them any less great taken all together.

But the idea that every intelligent middle-schooler must/ ought to be swept up by "The Scarlet Letter" or "Silas Marner" is nonsense.
