Striking a Balance

Given the fact that the authorizing law was enacted by the General Assembly, the regulations appear to strike a good balance on how the law should be applied in the Commonwealth. The more difficult and specific decisions are left to local school districts, so we will be hearing more about the decisions taken by local school districts under this policy in the coming months. Again, the Department of Education is doing what the law requires and they do make a point that no censorship or book banning is authorized under this law.
