Letter emailed to Virginia school board and state senator August 26, 2021.
I am writing to you this evening so you are ALL aware of what the parents in your district are feeling.
I moved my family to [redacted] from San Diego, CA in June to get away from the stifling political environment in the State that has spread like wildfire into their public school system. This was a very difficult decision after having lived there for 13 years. All four of our children were either born in CA or lived most of their lives there, so you can imagine all of the constructs that went into making this decision.
While looking for an area to live in the [redacted] region, I purposely bought a home in the [redacted] school district. This was at a significant cost. Just in transactional fees and moving costs alone, the price tag exceeded $150K…and that doesn’t include the cost of the home purchased here. It goes without saying that this was an important decision for our family, and one that I do not take lightly.
After the [redacted] school board meeting last week, it became apparent that the school board isn’t strong enough to focus on what they should be; academics (reading, writing, ‘rithmetic…you get the point). Instead, the board focused on political narratives, none of which should even be a consideration in our school system. I must give kudos for standing up to some of the intersectional politics that were presented, but the fact of the matter is, that decision doesn’t really impact a large number of your student population, therefore it shouldn’t be a difficult decision. Moreover, any political agenda that is presented to be part and parcel to education should be denied on its face. Period. Allowing it shows the political motives of the Board Members, rather than the educational interests of the students and parents, of which come the money to fund the school system.
As educators, empirical evidence, ethical research (unbiased), and an understanding of how these things impact our children and families should be at the forefront of every decision you make. Anything outside of that should be denied attention. More bluntly, you are in a place to teach our children foundational academics, not the social/emotional interpretation of their surroundings. Their social structure is formed through family and community and should be left to that.
Given the resumes of which many of you have, I find it important to point out a few things that YOU should come equipped with to a board meeting of such magnitude.
Trans Policies – The literature states that children who identify as trans are overwhelmingly likely to revert back to their birth gender by the time they are 18 years of age. Dr. King’s public comments on Fox News against the board indicates that her desire to appeal to intersectional politics overwhelms the need for attention to the literature which is a complete and utter failure.
Mask Policies – The literature states that masks are ineffective against the prevention or spread of COVID-19. It even states that on the box the masks come in. Additionally, children are susceptible to RSV (especially in humid climates) due to the constant mask-wearing. More than 500 children died of RSV last year. That is more than have died from COVID-19 in the past 18 months. Additionally, younger children develop through facial recognition (literature supported). Covering their faces, teacher’s faces, etc. stifles their development permanently. Even entertaining masks is shameful given the data available, and again, shows that Board Members want to show their political alignment, and embarrassingly, their authority over their constituents based on their political alignment.
Unfortunately, not rejecting these ideologies outright is dangerous and will undoubtedly be the undoing of our community, our State, and our Country. You had an opportunity to be a bastion of freedom in this State and the greater Country as a whole. You cowered to politics, assumingly afraid of the financial firestorm that may come about because of it. I am here to tell you that a firestorm is going to come in other forms. People are going to pull their kids out of our schools, just like we are.
Although the cumulative education on the “To” line is staggering, I feel that I must frame the future for you. Allowing masks on our children enables the masking of adults, and ushers in the shutdown that is coming in the next few weeks. When the businesses get shut down, they will not reopen. When the schools get shut down, they will not reopen. Your community will suffer and dwindle. COVID-19 isn’t what people are being told. The vaccine isn’t a vaccine at all, rather it is gene therapy. Take a look at the Nuremberg Code. Some of you are held to a professional account from this code, and should re-read it to understand the magnitude of it. Want to teach? Teach the historical lessons that exist. Teach about the Holocaust. Teach about how forced vaccines and vaccination passports were the tools the Nazis used to perpetuate one of the worst atrocities against human life ever to be recorded. If you can’t understand a simple History lesson, you certainly don’t deserve the privilege of teaching our young children. Shame on you.
Effective immediately, my Wife and I want our children disenrolled from this school district. “
“And don’t worry, I will be at the next board meeting, encouraging all in attendance to take the same actions.”
