Support the ammendment

As a mother of 6 Loudoun County Public Schools students I am writing to ask you to support this ammendment.  The only way for parets to ensure that their children aren't being taught things in school that are contrary to our values as a family is to know what they are studying.  Providing advance parental notification of sensitive material in books, identification of books containing sensitive material and an option to opt-out of discussions and assignments that cover sensitive topics is the only way to make this happen.  Please help us raise a strong and moral next generation by supporting this ammendment.

thank you,

Elizabeth Williams
