Maybe in universities. I remember in high school you spend more time listening to what is trying to be said then the literature itself. i also doubt most students in high school are looking at a degree in literature. For students wanting a degree in literature I would say that Shakespeare should be read as it is filled with great literature.
I'm not a fan of shakespeare but the vast majority of English majors and professors praise and respect his works. I defer to them.
I believe a more modern poet should replace him so more of what is learnt is currently relevant
like Benjamin zephaniah the world war poet
