SB 656 is vague and discriminatory

What is "sexually explicit" and who has the right to define that term?  This policy is a slippery slope, causing, at a minimum, misunderstanding and at a maximum, teacher firings, lawsuits, and children who won't have the opportunity to learn about cultures, conditions, and attitudes.  SB 656 is a dangerous policy.
