Proposed regulation for sexually explicit material in schools

I support the Board of Education's amendment to the regulation. As a parent in Fairfax County, I care about what my children see, read and learn. As my parents were notified when I was in middle school, and allowed to provide an alternative for me when they did not want me to see a controversial film in class, I too want the same respect. All parents should know what is being taught in their children's school and should be able to protect against sexually explicit material. Thank you for considering the parents' point of view. We are truly the ones who care most about our kids!!
