I support Parental Notification or Opting out certain reading assignments

Hopefully, the Virginia Board of Education will determine that parents must be notified if their child is going to be reading a book with explicit sexual, violent and or depraved materiasl.  

Our young people need to learn to read, to speak , to reason, too analyze.... they do not need to read trash ...

thank you.
