Strongly oppose

I strongly oppose any legislation that censors books used by teachers or polices what teachers are allowed to teach. I trust our administrators and teachers to teach what our public school kids need to know in their subject matter. I oppose anything that will make educators or students have to hide who they are. The classroom should be a place where students can explore ideas and ask questions safely.
