Unneeded and Damaging Policy!

As a parent of 3 Chesterfield grads, I see this regressive policy as both needless (parents already have more constructive routes to express views) and harmful, by inhibiting thoughtful, inclusive education about what’s real in students’ lives and our society—including importantly age-appropriate learning about “sex”-related topics (e.g. LGBT realities and issues)!!!
