What is this classic story/debate called?

It’s about a Utopia society but in the end you find there is a child locked away and that everyone sharing the secret is what keeps it a Utopia.

Utopia by Thomas More?

I think it is the short story by Ursula Le Guin The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas

Yes, as @flutherother says, that’s the one.

Yep- great story!

Trivia- spell Omelas backwards and you will have an idea where Ursula K. LeGuin was when she read a road sign backwards that gave her the name for her city…
