Model Policies Concerning Instructional Materials with Sexually Explicit Content
 

Hi, I am a long-term Loudoun resident.  My children are no longer in the school system.  However, as a taxpayer that is seeing our schools failing our children i continue to have a stake in what is being taught in our schools. 

Sexually explicit material has no place in our school systems, whether it be in the forms of books, on computers or teaching materials.  Our society is sexualized enough.  I know several young teenage men and women that have had pornography problems where in most cases started with sexually explicit material.   There is no need to introduce additional sexual temptation and arouse school children whether they have sis, LQBTQ+, non-binary or other tendencies. 

Please work to ensure such materials cannot be accessed via the internet in schools as well by using the appropriate blocking software. This is an extremely competitive world (just look at Russia and China).  Political agenda has no place in our classrooms.  Curriculums should refocus on reading, writing and arithmetic.  

Sincerely,

Bobbie
