Professor slams 'violent' books in Trinidad schools
Anonymous Patron writes "From Trinidad News, in Trinidad and Tobago , Professor Selwyn Cudjoe said on Saturday that the literature being used in schools is contributing to violence. In his speech, Prof Cudjoe said that development could not be measured in terms of income or wealth in terms of what kind of society we want to create by 2020 and asked the question how could our education system contribute to development.
He said, "Half the young people in schools are asked to read Shane, which is one of the violent books in American history. It perpetuates a culture of violence.""
