A Loudoun County, Virginia school board meeting made headlines Tuesday, August 10th after proposals regarding Critical Race Theory, transgender pronouns, mask mandates, and vaccines prompted fiery responses from parents and teachers.
Sarah Taylor at The Blaze reported that Laura Morris, a fifth-grade teacher in Leesburg, Virginia resigned publicly stating among other things:
“This summer I have struggled with the idea of returning to school, knowing that I’ll be working yet again with a school division that, despite its shiny tech and flashy salary, promotes political ideologies that do not square with who I am as a believer in Christ.”
Phil Shiver, also at The Blaze, reported that at the same meeting, an unnamed father identifying himself as an Iranian Christian immigrant spoke also.
“These are our children, not yours… Their job is not to raise my child or my neighbor’s child. Their job is to teach our kids math, science, biology, literature, and that’s it. Not ideology. Now you want to push garbage crap like ‘pronouns.’ How the hell does that keep a kid from succeeding? How does that help them?”
“You wanna push that garbage down my kids’ throats, I will make you call my kids king and queen. That’s how you will address my son and daughter. And when you look at me, you will call me master.”
Kudos to these two, and well-said. You are my heroes, and we need a nation full of parents and teachers willing to take a stand now just like you did.
