No to censorship!

How can teachers know what is "sensitive" and/or "controversial" material that they may be teaching?  We have a very diverse population of students and what may be a problem for one group, may not be a problem for another.  We will have nothing left to choose from for reading materials to spark thought and conversation.  This is a nation built upon freedoms, not censorship!  This is one more affront to teachers that we don't know how to do our jobs.
