I support the amendment

I support parental notification of sensitive materials.

No one should begrudge a parent trying to give his or her child the best educational experience they feel possible. High academic standards, qualified teachers, and parental involvement are what drive academic excellence. Allowing for notice and an opt-out option for parents who do not wish their child to participate will only promote parental involvement and strengthen our educational system.
