The Loudoun County Public School Board and members of the administration are controlled by special interests who have injected identity politics into education as early as Kindergarten. Rather than work with parents to answer questions and concerns, members of the school board and administration take to social media to attack parents, intimidate teachers who question the politicization of education, and spend millions in tax dollars to implement critical race theory in our schools.
Fight for Schools is a non-partisan organization that will work to recall the six school board members who were members of a private Facebook group that targeted parents and members of the community who exercised their First Amendment rights to question Loudoun County Public Schools for (1) not fully reopening schools, and (2) implementing divisive and discriminatory critical race theory concepts in education. Those school board members are: Beth Barts, Brenda Sheridan, Ian Serotkin, Denise Corbo, Leslee King, and Atoosa Reaser.
Fight for Schools will also support or oppose new candidates for the school board based on three simple concepts.
First, the candidate must be committed to a transparent and honest school board and administration that operates with decorum and decency and provides forthright answers in response to questions from the community.
Second, the candidate must support depoliticized teacher trainings and curriculum that do not emphasize “what to think,” but rather provides the tools necessary for students to become independent-minded and critical-thinking adults.
Third, every candidate must truly believe the following: “Racism is a perceptive error, and what you actually have to do is you have to get into spaces where you're meeting people and perceiving them as human beings and not as racial stereotypes and myths.” – Thomas Chatterton Williams
Therefore, candidates must only support policies that advance the goal of building tolerant, young adults that do not discriminate because of immutable characteristics, but rather judge every individual solely by the content of their character.
