Sexualization of our children is sick and dangerous.  It is absolutely horrific, ill-conceived, and incomprehensible that so-called 'educators' wish to perpetrate and normalize perversions upon our children in the name of 'wokeness' and 'political correctness.'

We need to protect our children from inappropriate sexual content at school and to protect parental rights to determine whether our children should be exposed to this content.

Not only do parents have a fundamental right to make these decisions for their children, but they are also in the best position to know what is right and appropriate for their own children.  This decision has no business in the hands of educators who should only teach reading, writing, arithmetic, along with history and science.

You MUST make sure, via this document, that there are specific actions that EVERY school in EVERY school district across this state (as well as the rest of our nation) must take to ensure that sexually explicit materials are correctly identified and seen by parents first. I am concerned that unless certain minimum standards are expressly mandated (as opposed to suggestions or providing examples), many schools will find ways around what they consider to be merely 'guidance.
