Reading Material

Far too long liberal materials are being forced into the classroom, even at very young ages.  Parents need to be aware of the books and textbooks that their children are required to read before the fact, not during or after the assignment has been made.  Textbooks are leaving out vital, moral information that might offend the immoral majority, not the morally upright citizens.  As an elementary teacher, I have been offended by some of the textbooks being forced on us with material totally inappropriate for moral, Christian citizens.  History textbooks are omitting facts and presenting twisted views of events.  Please make the process more inclusive of parental input.  Thank you for allowing me to voice my opinion.
