IT is a bit much to expect schoolchildren to read Ulysses and Don Quixote, merely because both books are so long that it is not only in the students interest to find clever ways of not reading it but it is also very hard to test the student in a way that proves that he or she has read it. Nevertheless, I'm not sure why it is all "ambitious" to expect schools to expect children to read these books.
