Loudoun County Parent Rants At Local School Board
Here Is An Example Of Parents Getting Involved In Their School
Parents of Loudoun County, Virginia, slammed the Loudoun County School Board on Tuesday, May 11, 2021, for seeking to implement “racist” Critical Race Theory (CRT) in schools. Critical Race Theory is an academic movement transpiring at schools across the country, teaching children that the United States is fundamentally racist and that they must view every social interaction and person in terms of race or color in order to be “antiracist.”
One of the parents who appeared before the school board gave them a piece of her mind in the tweet on the next column.
#Loudouncounty parents brought the ??? at the school board meeting tonight.

On that same Tuesday, the political action committee Fight for Schools launched a recall effort against six members of Virginia’s Loudoun County School Board who were found participating in a private Facebook group, called, “Anti-Racist Parents of Loudoun County,” which had created and shared a list of parents who opposed CRT, as well as parents who wanted to re-open schools in the district.
Can you do this?
Of course, you can.
All you need to do is to find some other people who feel the same as you. Do you know other parents in your child’s classes or people who attend your church with kids in the same school district? Once you have four or five of your friends, start attending and/or viewing school board meetings to see what is going on. If you find things that concern you, prepare to attend the next meeting and bring friends. Things always go better the more people that attend on your side.
