Model Policies Concerning Instructional Materials with Sexually Explicit Content

I support these critically important model policies in order to protect children from inappropriate sexual content at school. Parents have the right to determine whether their children are exposed to sexually explicit content, and they are in the best position to know what is appropriate for their children.

This document should also contain specific actions that every school must take in order to ensure sexually explicit materials are correctly identified and seen by parents first. I am concerned that many schools may find ways around what they consider mere guidance vice minimum standards that are expressly mandated.
