I support the Board of Education's ammendation

I support the Board of Education's Ammendment to the regulation.  Parent's should be made aware at leat two weeks in advance and allowed to decline the use of sexually explicit material.  Furthermore, the reading of such material should not be used for any level of our public education system.  Reading can place a permanent mark on our developing minds just as much as viewing a picture; it does not promote a positive culture in our children, our nation, and further removes us from the peace that we claim to seek.
