Reject this law

.'including a notice to parents about any sensitive or sexually explicit materials that may be included in the course, the textbook, or any supplemental instructional materials;"

This is scary, who will determine what is and isn't sexually explicit? How will it be enforced? What would happen to materials found to have "sexually explilcit" burning?  I can only foresee this leading to censorship and a new found friendship with the ACLU.
