I am not in favor

I am not in favor of this amendment. It would be too difficult for a teacher to know if something is considered sensitive or not. It would discourage us from trying new stories later in the year, on the off chance that someone would find something objectionable. The amendment is too vague and difficult for a reasonable person to follow.
