OK, I'll just put this out there. First, I don't think basal readers are 100 percent bad. And second, I think some "classic" books have outlived their relevance.

Basal readers were great. The 3rd grade Houghton Mifflin had wonderful stories from real books and read aloud tapes that went with them.

It's just that Big Businesses of education needed to make a lot of money by giving new curriculum. It's always about the money.

The Human Condition has not changed and neither has the themes of life. Why would a good book go out of relevance? Maybe if one is trying to push a narrative, they might try and ban a book by saying it's not relevant.
