I looked at the reading list the school district had posted. It was bizarre.

The comments say no book is included that has been made into a movie... so they can't read LOTR, but they can read Terry Brooks (misspelled Terry Blacks in the list) and Piers Anthony. I am uncertain what educational purpose that choice might serve.

Apparently, they also can't read any of a whole lot of classic novels, but I admit I didn't search the list to make sure Pride and Prejudice was really excluded.
