Gender politics. Fairfax County taxpayer waste. Why not just educate?

Jeff Hoffman

Our leaders must remember that education doesn’t begin with some isolated bureaucrat’s hidden agenda or union boss in Washington (in our case, across the river). It doesn’t even begin with state or local officials – like a General Assembly in Richmond who can’t even pass a state budget. It begins with the parents!

This Thursday, May 26, the Fairfax County School Board is scheduled to vote on measures to enhance the so-called “gender identity” language in the Student Rights & Responsibilities (SR&R) regulation. Measures include a decrease in the age of children susceptible to greater disciplinary actions. According to recent articles in media outlets like the “New York Post”, this could result in suspension or expulsion for what the SR&R regulation defines as “malicious misgendering or deadnaming.” Kids as young as K-3 are susceptible to some form of discipline.
