Model policies concerning instructional materials with sexually explicit content

I support model policies to protect children from inappropriate sexual content at school. Parents should be the judges of such content, not the state or the school bureaucracies which do not have, and cannot have, the have the best interests of my child at heart.

My children belong to me.  They do not belong to the state.  Please provide complete transparency of all school materials to parents, but especially any materials that discuss sexuality.  Anything less is unacceptable.  Stop the sexual grooming of children contrary to the wishes of their parents.  I have sacrificed everything for my children - the school bureaucracies of state, which are subject to corruption, have no claim, therefore in comparison.  Please protect our children with policies that guarantee transparency and parental rights.  Stop the theft of our rights as parents by those who would trample on what is best for children in the name of their own misguided and greedy agendas.

Please make sure to document the rights of parents and minimum actions that every school must take to ensure transparency and the right of parents to choose what is best for their children.  Government-appointed bureaucracies do not love children; parents do.
