Parental preview of online material
Schools must be mandated to allow parents to preview online material that supplement or replace students' pre approved, textbooks? Texbooks are being set aside and parents have no idea what online material is replacing text books, is supplementing textbooks, or is assigned as homework.

This doesn't much seem like a question for the FCC; more like a question for the Department of Education...or better the kind of softball one might lob up to a Michele Bachmann or Rick Perry. How do I ensure that the schools will never challenge my children with any ideas that are outside my view of the world...like evolution or climate change...

Districts pay educators to make those decisions. If it was not a practice to include parents in hard-copy decision making, it should not be an expectation with digital content. Once content decisions are made, the content should be accessible to parents as a means to support learners, not evaluate materials.
