Support of amendment
 

I strongly support the amendment to the regulation.  Youth in  our schools should not be required to read books with themes containing depictions of sexually explicit graphic violence and other highly controversial adult themes without sufficient parental notification and opt out options or alternatives.  Consistent application of the policy, whether audio or text  should be the policy.
