PROCEED WITH CAUTION
 

A policy should be in place for sexually sensitive material.  However, who deems what is sensitive or controversial?  Are the controversial subjects just limited to sexual content?  Does it limit freedom of speech?  How would this measure affect students’ freedom to choose material that might be controversial  to read from the school library?
