Oppose Amendment
 

 

School districts already have policies in place to deal with the teaching of controversial texts and supplemental materials. Parents should communicate with schools and with their student's teacher to make sure these policies are well written and followed.

The proposed amendment would create excessive paperwork and actually reduce communication between teachers and parents.
