I live in Fairfax County, the 10th largest public-school district in the nation.
But I never focused on our public schools. My kids go to Catholic schools, and that was the center of our universe. I never focused, that is, until I heard that the Fairfax County School Board voted to let boys into the girls’ bathrooms.
The vote was 10-1. Was there only one sane person on the Fairfax County School Board?
I had to find out.
So, I began attending school board meetings.
And there I saw moms and dads begging the school board to stop threatening their child’s privacy and safety in intimate spaces and on sports field. They pleaded with them to stop the pornographic reading assignments. They tearfully asked them to respect their family’s religious beliefs.
These were my neighbors, fighting to stop their school board from playing sex politics with their children.
This shouldn’t happen anywhere in America. I resolved that it wasn’t going to happen in my county, on my watch, without a fight.
