Reject the amendment

Who gets to decide what is "sensititve" material? Will The Tragedy of Julius Caesar be pulled because of murder? Will Romeo and Juliet be removed from the curriculum because of suicide? Will Things Fall Apart be considered pagan because not every character believes in our God? Our govermentment should not be expected to parent our children. Parents need to be more involved and actually have conversation with their children.
