Many working in the DC area choose to live in Fairfax County, VA because of the great schools. But what happened at the Fairfax School Board meeting on June 25, 2015 is a microcosm of what is happening in schools across the United States. And isn’t it ironic that the next day, just a few miles away, 5 individuals put their stamp of approval on gender identity curriculum by mandating what is impossible, what some call same-sex marriage.
The Fairfax County School Board did everything they could to ignore parents, and some say this new agenda may not even align with state standards. Wait, isn’t that what happened in Tempe High Schools late last year? It seems there is a one size fits all to be elected to public school boards.
Let’s give support to Elizabeth Schultz and Patty Reed who had the guts to go against the tide in Fairfax County and DC last week and turn down this controversial, dangerous curriculum. Both of their terms expire at the end of 2015. Elizabeth Schultz will be a target this fall, let’s support her campaign and for standing for the parents of Fairfax County.
Investigating the backgrounds and donors of the Board members who voted against the parents will take awhile, there are 10 of them. We are working on that now.
