CCSD letter asks parents to ban Netflix show

Clark County School District is reaching out to parents and warning them about a controversial Netflix show titled "13 Reasons Why."

The show revolves around a teenager's suicide and CCSD psychologist are recommending that parents stop "vulnerable youth" from watching the series. The show has been met with widespread praise, but it's easy to see how the subject matter may be too much for impressionable teens.

CCSD at the very least will create an open dialogue between parents and students regarding the subject of suicide.
