Reject. Education is meant to open minds not hinder them. Let the student judge. Let teachers teach
The arts and literature already suffer by not having enough funding already. Must we hender their materials as well? Even A midsummer nights dream has sensitive material to it. Real literature is written from real people in the real world feeling these sensitive dreams and thoughts and actions. It isn't right to hinder literature. Let teachers teach and let students judge and parents do their research when syllabi reach home.
