Reject this Ammendment

The wording on this ammendment is far too vague.  Who is to decide how far the phrase "sensitive material" can stretch? Parents need to talk to teachers to understand what their kids are learning.  They already have an opt out option of anything they do not agree with.  This ammendment will only be used as a weapon against teachers, and not as a way of protecting children.
