Vern Minor, superintendent of the Missouri school district recently had two books banned from being read within his schools. He says that the talk about what movies are and are not appropriate will be coming soon.
He thinks that the district might be able to use standards set by the motion picture industry. For example, elementary students would watch G rated movies, middle school PG rated, and high school students could be allowed to watch PG-13.
This is a common issue school districts face nationwide, not knowing whether parents will approve of movies being shown in the classroom. It is argued that some children may not have exposure to violence, foul language, or other instances that occur in movies. By having movie regulations in the classroom, it may be easier for parents and teachers to come to an agreement on what is appropriate to watch.
