(Concord, N.H. ) - New Hampshire's Senate has approved a bill giving parents at least two weeks notice if a teacher plans to use material  in the classroom related to human sexuality or sexual education that some could consider objectionable.


The bill also calls for schools to make the material available to parents when practical. This follows a controversy last year when a man complained  that his daughter, a student at Gilford High School, had read a  novel about bullying that contained a sexually explicit passage.  William Baer said the book "Nineteen Minutes" by New Hampshire author Jodi Picoult read like "the transcript for a  triple-X-rated movie."  The Gilford school board later apologized for not sending home prior notice.
