Model Policies Concerning Instructional Materials with Sexually Explicit Content

I support these critically important model policies in order to protect children from inappropriate sexual content at school and to respect parents' rights to determine whether their children are exposed to this content.  Parents know their child best, and schools should partner with them to ensure the curricula content is appropriate for their maturity.  Under VA law, parents have the fundamental right to make decisions about the education of their children, and this bill and these model policies are needed to ensure that right is not undermined by certain explicit school curriculum.
