Oppose this Bill

I oppose this bill. As a parent of a student in Virginia, I know our schools already have processes in place for notification about curriculum and content, especially around subjects like sex education. This bill creates a vague and redundant requirement for educators, provides no new meaningful resources for parents of students, but appears crafted to provide conservative activists with yet another avenues to harass teachers and try to remove any curriculum that does not fit their narrow worldview.
