No- to the proposed Amendment

If parents want to homeschool their children from a special interest leaning and keep them in a closet without exposure to great literature and discussion of real life issues with trained professonals, let them do this. But for public schools we expect a level of education and open discusson that allows our children to develope the abilty to discern, and make wise life choices. Keep the government out of the classroom with their archaic backward policies of censorship. This ruling would put undue hardship on the teachers and school systems which are already over burdened with performance expectations that have nothing to do with teaching and learning and as well as decreased funding for direct classroom care. A very very concerned citizen!
