More issues with the Loudoun County School Board.
These people just can’t seem to get anything right.
“My name is Laura Morris. I have been a teacher in Loudoun County Public Schools for five years, and a teacher for 10. In that time, I have learned so much being on the cutting edge of educational technology and working with a diverse population of students that I have loved. This year, I have the privilege to follow my amazing fourth graders up to fifth and I have been excited about this all summer. On the other hand, 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. After reading about your lack of consideration for the growing population of concerned citizens in this division, clearly evidenced by this empty room tonight where you shut the doors to the public, as well as the emails sent by the superintendent last year, reminding me that a dissenting opinion is not allowed even to be spoken in my personal life, going so far as to send a form to my colleagues and I encouraging us to fill it out if we hear one another speaking against the controversial policies being promoted by this school board and adopted in this county.
Not only that, but within the last year, I was told in one of my so called equity trainings that white Christian, able bodied females currently have the power in our schools, and that quote, this has to change. Clearly, you’ve made your point. You no longer value me or many other teachers you’ve employed in this county. So since my contract outlines the power that you have, over my employment in Loudoun County Public Schools, I thought it necessary to resign in front of you, school board, I quit. I quit your policies, I quit your trainings, and I quit being a cog in a machine that tells me to push highly politicized agendas on our most vulnerable constituents, the children, I will find employment elsewhere. I encourage all parents and staff in this county to flood the private schools.” – Laura Morris
Under this bill, faculty and staff will be punished if they don’t comply with the preferred pronouns of students as early as kindergarten.

The people are fed up with these crazy school board’s that don’t act in the children’s best interests…
“This is so sad. Radicals at the helm. All for power.”
“Brave and sad that she had to pull that trigger. That school board is a star chamber of communists.”
“Good for her. More people need to have her guts, and her ability and courage to stand up for herself, her values, and the education of our future generations.”
“There is a lot of this going on, even in Red counties. Definitely a coordinated effort, and teachers and parents are being lied to by boards just like this one.”
“This is just the beginning. I am getting business investors together to start MORE private schools because the ones in my area have waiting lists 30+ kids long per class. Public education is criminal.”
“I retired from teaching in 2002. WTH has happened? It seems the ” woke” culture has captured the public school system Nation Wide. Parents need to turn this around vote out woke bd. members put in Bds. oF Ed. That will cleans the system of this heinous ideology!!”
“This is what integrity looks like. Very rare these days.”
This isn’t nearly the first time people have had issues with the Loudoun County School Board…
