Awareness is a parental right

Please let parents know of pornoscripted materials that are contraversial.  This is adult literature not childrens section!!!  Librarians, teachers were you ever in school?  Children should not be required to read contraversial material for a grade!  School should be a protected environment where children learn truth and goodness, respect and honor societies moral values and integrety.  When graphic material or books or any media portray evil as good or twist the perspective of truth and press the legal limitations of what is right and wrong it takes away our freedom to be happy with all that is true good and pure.  Please allow our children to be our children.  We have the parental right and responsibility to protect our children until they are 18 at least!  If they want to read contraversial or adult rated material let them do so on their own time or when they are adults that should be their choice and not the AP English teachers criteria!!!!
