Strongly Oppose

I strongly oppose how this guidance document infringes on children's freedom to freely access information. While it is written to appear to have benevolent intentions of protecting children from harmful, abusive or sexually explicit materials, I believe in school systems' common sense restriction of this material as it rarely has valuable educational content. The true repercussions of this guidance are to suppress education on non heterosexual or gender normative experiences.
