Strongly Oppose SB 656

Virginia has the 4th best public schools in the US. Please don't mess it up. This policy  is not necessary or helpful and has huge downside risks. Parents are already able to review their children's curricula and serve on local advisory boards. Science continues to prove the importance of diversity for any system and Virginia is great because of the diversity we embrace. Our great schools are thanks to great teachers...including librarians! We should continue to trust their judgement.
