I support Parents Right/ remove the Garbage

I have worked and presented to our local SB to have sexual explicit material removed not only in instructional material but in our children's libraries within school. No matter the gender or type of sex, subjecting minors to this becomes a Slippery slope. They become desensitized to sexual behavior that in same of these books is abusive. Studies have shown this in a rate of 400% of adolescents in ages 11 to 14. Ratings need to be provided for reading material just as mush as their is for visual movies and graphic gaming. And parents have the right to know what is being presented to their children in form of instructional or in optional reading material.
