Were all adults in the room correct? According to the government we are old enough to vote and go to war yet we are still told what we can and cannot view or hear on TV or radio. The first amendment clearly states Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, Censorship occurs when materials, like books, magazines, films and videos, or works of art, are removed or kept from public access. Individuals and groups identify materials they find offensive. Sometimes they succeed in persuading schools not to use them in their curriculum, libraries not to shelve them, book and video stores not to carry them, publishers not to publish them, or art galleries not to display them. Censorship also occurs when materials are restricted to particular audiences, based on their age or other characteristics. Censorship exists everywhere, such as your neighborhood, school, or small community.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
