Meaningless discussion without operating definition of "sensitive"

Discussion on a plan to propose this rule change is meaningless without an operating definition of what "sensitive" means. As a default, we believe in the words of a great Virginian, Thomas Jefferson, that the government that governs best governs least.

The agency in this case has not demonstrated a need to grow the educational bureaucracy or regulations surrounding education. These decisions are best left to parents, teachers, and elected school officials on a local level.
