Parents, teachers, and a lone school board member continue to heat things up in Loudoun County School Board meetings in their fight against Critical Race Theory (CRT) in the K-12 public schools there. One hundred and twenty-three (123) citizens showed up to speak at 4 p.m. on a hot Tuesday afternoon this week. There were only a handful of people who spoke in favor of CRT at the meeting.

Tuesday’s meeting was one of many. UncoverDC, on May 17, wrote a story about the explosive March 11 meeting. Parents spoke passionately about graphic books that are readily available in K-12 public schools.

The Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) have been accused of promoting biased social justice materials in all grades there. The Virginia county also sought to discourage the celebration of Dr. Seuss’s books on their Read Across America Day celebrations associated with the author’s birthday.

A new superintendent, Scott Ziegler, was also named at the meeting. He has served as interim superintendent for Eric Williams since Jan 1. Williams resigned in late 2020. Many parents indicated displeasure with the appointment, saying they did not feel he listens to their concerns. The meeting was over three hours long.

On Tuesday, Juli Briskman, who is on the Board of Supervisors, wrote a letter supporting the board’s mission to adopt a CRT curriculum. She states in her letter that “LCPS has a low level of racial consciousness.
