This is censorship, fascism, religious interference, and a huge government overreach! Teachers and librarians are educated and qualified to guide these discussions. If you want your child “protected” from learning about the diverse world they live in, then homeschool them. You have no right to deny that opportunity to other children!!! No surprise that this comes from Dr. Dunnavant. She is dangerous. We cannot let Virginia slide down that narrow  minded bigoted slope. In reading these comments from supporters, they are not qualified to  tell anyone what is acceptable in the classroom! Homeschool or private school is always an option for them. I do not want my taxes used on censorship! You will lose qualified teachers over this, and seriously harm children! Rescind this awful bill!!
