Yes, because that's an important part of life and it's what people write about in books. Frum people have yet to produce great novels.

Also, I love short stories but it speaks very poorly of the education system if it's true that so few students are reading the books.

We're obviously living in different worlds. It's not an important part of my 13 yo son's world at all to read such a thing
I don't think anything has changed in education. I went to a co-ed school 25 years ago and I can remember one boy in my grade reading the assigned novels throughout all our year's of high school. Cliffs notes and spark notes were created for a reason

Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry (not used)
The Westing Game
The Hobbit (kids were finding this extremely boring, it might be swapped out)
The Breadwinner
City of Ember

In public school, it's usually used as a 5th grade level book.

Great choices! I love THE WESTING GAME. Read it as an adult when a coworker recommended it.
CITY OF EMBER is also fun. I work for the publisher. Not that I'm biased!

Someone mentioned Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry. I thought that was really good, read it for school in sixth but like I said I tended be assigned books a grade earlier.

Could be it was in our 6th grade list and I mixed it up. Our school hasn't used it in years. I was just guessing when inventorying.

I wouldn't get too hung up on the exact grade a book is assigned. I went to a highly selective, academically intense, non-Jewish private high school and we read Charlotte's Web freshman year, along with other writings, for a unit on E.B. White. I had read Charlotte's Web in third grade also, but the experience was very different in high school. The same work can be read and understood at different levels.
