Reject this vague regulation

This proposed regulation is not good for our children.  The goal of education is to create independent thinkers who become responsible, productive citizens.  In order to become independent thinkers students need to be exposed to a variety of views so they can form their own opinions.    This regulation is definitely heading down the road to censorship and has no place in education.  Not everyone has the same definition of "sensitive";  my children should be allowed to read material that yours may not.
