Support for Board of Education's proposed regulations
I support the proposed regulations in favor of parental notifications and Avoiding use of explicit materials in the classroom.What a horrible thing to teach children.Things I would not even discuss in adult company.Parents have a right and a responsibility to know what is being taught to their children.I removed my child from public schools due to their unwillingness to exempt my child from material I disagreed with.It was not in the same class with what is mentioned here.All parents need to insist that these changes be made,or remove your children.You can teach them much better yourself.You cannot allow this to be taught to your precious children.Get them in a better environment if the changes are not made.
