I feel that the amendment that you are are trying to put in place will affect every class that the Virginia schools have to offer. How will you know someone will take it offensive? I think that if we are warned on every little tiny thing that may be inappropriate, teachers will modify a lot of the things that they do. Parents will take things too seriously. Coming from a student I know from experience that my mom my take it too seriously and think that if there is a warning that there is definitely a risk of me losing my innocence. Its a good idea but to an extent. Most of the things we learn and do in school someone could always take it the wrong way, but, that is always the case. Students are always interested when it comes to different if controversial topics
