I oppose this guidance document as it's highly subjective what is sexually explicit and seems like a veiled attempt to censor honest sex education in the schools and freedom of speech and literary exploration.  The byproduct of this initiative will be pulling books out of libraries that introduce any concept that a parent may not agree with.  It also seems to be implying a fake problem of teachers sharing pornography with children.  In my experience that isn't happening.
