Conejo School Board member Mike Dunn comments on BookGate

By Mike Dunn
Editor’s note:  Several Conjeo Valley Unified School District board members are opposed to having books with pornographic content provided to students without parental permission. We asked board member Mike Dunn, who has been attacked for this, to comment on it for publication.  His brief response:
What kind of people want to force children to read books with pornography in them?  I support parent permission slips.  Parent permission slips allow parents to protect their children without the need to remove books from the recommended or required reading lists.
Controversial books should require the same parent permission that R rated movies require.

    Don’t sit this one out… please get involved!

    Mike Dunn is 1,000% correct!! He’s been vilified for his position. His detractors have resorted to name-calling and out-right lying about what Mr. Dunn’s objective is.

    I question the judgement of anyone, parent, student, taxpayer, who would disagree with his statement.

    I can’t help but to agree with Mike Dunn and Ronald Lyons. It seems that choice is only paramount when it comes to anything but what’s in the public education system. Too often the elect few will decide what your children are exposed to instead of the Parents of our children.

    Where did I get this profound information?……..From my 43 years of experience in my career with The Los Angeles Unified School District.

    Thank goodness we have Mike Dunn and John Anderson on the Conejo Valley School Board as defenders of parental choice in student reading material. They are like knights in the shining armor of truth and dignity in education.
