8 VAC 20-720- Please reject this amendment

I do not support this amendment. It is not possible for anyone to know exactly what might offend another. Our educators adequately notify parents and students of the material being taught through course syllabi.  Students may opt out of material they find offensive but it is not reasonable to expect our educators to fully spell out all potential areas of controversy or possible offense.
