Loudoun County Courthouse

An entrance to the Loudoun County Courthouse in Leesburg.

Can parents dictate a school district’s policies and what information the district required to provide parents about their children? Those questions were asked by Judge Douglas L. Fleming on Tuesday in Loudoun Circuit Court to the lawyer representing a group of parents in a lawsuit seeking a takeover of Loudoun County Public Schools.

The parents accuse LCPS staff in the suit of “political and cultural indoctrination” of their children and exposing them to “inappropriate sexual and racial content” and endangering them physically and psychologically. They want a “special master” or “commissioner in chancery” to run LCPS rather than the school board and interim Superintendent Daniel W. Smith.

Public schools are, and have always been secular. Enroll in a private or parochial school if you want morals imposed on your kids. If they already have a smartphone, you're fooling yourselves about keeping them from exposure to any immoral indoctrination.


Has anyone seen actual proof of a death threat or is it someone off the record overheard by someone in another stall given ammo for the cannon fodder?

Either there are no credible death threats or law enforcement is not doing there job. Which is it?

Evidence of death threat?? you mean someone saying that they or their family received a death threat is not enough? Really??
