Do not support SB656

I oppose the model policies on instructional material with sexually explicit content as outlined in SB 656.

One of the purposes of education is to expose students to new ideas and accurate facts and information, not to be limited by what one group deems appropriate.

Virginia has well-trained teachers and librarians that know what is needed and what is appropriate for their students.  They do need everyone's support.  They do not need to be threatened by unnecessary regulations and policies.
