I support this amendment

I support this amendment to give students t an opt-out and for parents to be given advanced notification if books with mature content are to be read in the class.  Parents not only should be more involved in the education of thier children,  but to more actively monitor where public educucation funds are being spent and to ensure teachers and school administrators are sensitive and receptive to the values and concerns of parents.
