I don't think this admendment should be passed because some of the learning that we learn in school may be a little inappropriate or offensive but some of the learning is just that way because the material is facts. Some material you can't teach and try to go around it because you try not to make some one feel bad. For Example in history, some people may feel a little senstive because of things in the past, but teachers have to say what happened so students can learned what happen, you can't try to say things in a nice way so the language want be offensive or make others feel senstive because then students want be getting the full details on sitations or whatever they are learning.
