I've read 10 of the top 20, 6 of which I read as school assignments. Lord of the Flies, Brave New World, 1984 and Catch 22 weren't school assignments.

I found it interesting that Captain Underpants was on the complaint list in five different years. It was very popular in my son's grade school. They were among the hundreds of chapter books I bought for him.
