We did read 1984 and Brave New World.  My group also read The Sun Also Rises which was a pointless book about people getting drunk all the time (reflects the title). 

On the other hand, I didn't get to read Out of the Silent Planet and the Lord of the Rings trilogy for book reports.  Of course, I screwed up the book report for the second one procrastinating.  My senior english teacher was surprised I was ranked as high as I was in my graduating class.

Got to remember education is not so much about the kids anymore but more about the teachers and the unions now. The kids are the pawns in their chess game.
