Please Approve Ammendment to Err on side of caution

Dear Sir or Ma'am,

As someone who has seen first hand the devastating effect of oversexualizing our young people's minds, I solomnly urge you to put in place protections for our young people by giving parents advanced notification of sensitive material.  Books that contain sensitive material should be clearly identified.  Alternate titles must be provided to those who wish to opt out of reading this material.  And students should be able to be excused from class if they chose for these discussions.  Please err on the side of caution for our young people!

Thank you very much,

Kyle White
