Protect our children / They belong to us not the State

Here are two main reasons I believe and support content that is being shared in schools be previewed by parents before ever subjecting children to curriculum: 

1. The importance of having model policies in order to protect children from inappropriate sexual content at school and to respect parents’ right to determine whether their children are exposed to any inappropriate content.

2. Parents have the fundamental right to make these decisions of what is good and right for their children to see and be introduced  too. We, the parents, are in the best position to know what is appropriate for our unique children. 

Our children belong to us not the state; therefore,  we should be the ones to have the right to say what is good, right, and pure for our children to be taught and subjected too.
