Should Shakespeare Be Taught In Today's Society

Satisfactory Essays
Today I will be saying why Shakespeare should not be taught in today's society, and my main question is why do teachers even bother trying to teach us about Shakespeare? He was a famous writer back in the 16th century but now his work is just irrelevant in today's modern society. Students, like myself, should be learning more about modern writers that use a language we understand and that write about things that are actually relevant. Most of his plays are very sexual and has a horrendous amount of violence in them. Students are better off not wasting their time trying to learn about Shakespeare and his ways. There are so many things we could be learning about that would help students off in the long run when we leave school.
