Romeo and Juliet should be banned from schools. Plus, the massive printing of a lot of books of these kills lots of trees. Even though, you can read it online, it's a sad tragedy that ended with the suicide of a young girl and guy. It would encourage those who are depressed to commit suicide too.

Romeo and Juliet is one of the best things to happen to public schools. It not only gives students an insight on one of Shakespeare's greatest works (and there are a lot of them), but there is also a lot of language analysis involved, which helps them to prepare for further exams, giving them qualifications and great jobs.

What? What kind of argument could you possibly make for Romeo and Juliet being banned?
