This bill doesn’t go far enough

This bill does nothing concerning the sexually explicit books in student libraries. VA Law as well as Federal laws all prohibiting sexually explicit materials in the hands of minors. Movies, music, video games and magazines such as Playboy, all have age restrictions.  So why is it appropriate for a school to provide the very same material under the guise of education?  Why not enforce the laws already on the books to include legal consequences for any school employee responsible in providing such materials to minors?  Especially given the recent articles of school employees who have been arrested for having inappropriate touching, sex and relationships with students, it seems almost by design to normalize such topics to either prevent children from turning in their abuser or to further the agenda of MAPS. Let’s also not forget the Communist Goals sworn into the 1963 Congressional Record that states the goal is to corrupt society.  The schools are responsible for introducing, what many have described as porn to minors.  By the very act of making it available, the message sent is, it is acceptable.
