Do not allow for loosely worded laws to facilitate erasure of the LGBTQIA community

Censorship has no place in public schools. Public schools are meant to represent the diverse melting pot community that makes up the United States. Representation of different family structures are essential for kids and teens to formulate a more broad understanding of the world and to have an inclusive and kind view towards neighbors of many backgrounds. 

Do not censor reading material in schools! It encourages violence and bullying to oppressed and minority groups.
