Sensitvity is subjective and should be determined by local division

Students of all ages should be guided in choice and learn how to deal with sensitive material, not totally restricted from it. The more material is censored, the more misinformation  and misinterpretation abounds.  School divisions need to have a policy in place, as many of us already do, for handling these issues with local input.
