Fairfax County Parents Demand School Board Resign After ‘Doubling Down’ On ‘P0*n In Schools’


Parents gathered outside the Fairfax County School Board meeting on Thursday, voicing their opposition to what they term pedophilia and “porn in schools” after Fairfax County Public Schools reintroduced two books containing depictions of sexual activity.


“They’ve doubled down on porn in the schools. They’ve all got to go,” Stacy Langton, the Fairfax County mother who confronted the school board with images from the books in September, told Fox News. “Who’s in favor of porn in the schools?”

“The school board is failing our children,” Maria Sherwell, a mother of two children in FCPS schools, told Fox News.

“The attendance is down, the grades are down, children are being subjected to sexual surveys that are completely out of line,” she said, referring to an official FCPS survey asking… (Read more)
