Support Parental Notification of Sexual/Sensitive topic in schools

Public Schools have a responsibility to it's families to provide instructional material that is age appropriate.  Any material that may be considered sensitive or questionable, should be reviewed by a specific school committee that is composed of staff and parents.  Even then, If a student or parent feels the material is not appropriate for their child, they should be provided another choice for materials.  This is done at Woodson High School in Fairfax.
