Sensitive material?

This is ridiculous and trivial.  The parents should have some responsibility to be proactive about what their children are reading, and sensitive material is so vague.  Who is to say what is sensitive to one person vs. another??  The legislation should instead read that parents can come into the school and look at the textbooks if they like!  Yet more silly and busy work for highly qualified teachers likely to push more out of the profession.
