In favor of regulations that require parental notification of sexual or violent materials in class

I strongly favor the adoption of regulations covering all public schools that require notification of parents when sexually explicit, violent or behviorally deviant lesson materials are proposed for use in class.  Parents must have the right to opt out of such experiences on behalf of their children.
