Loudoun County School Board Member Calls For Superintendent To Resign For Pushing Trans Policy


A member of the Loudoun County School Board in Virginia has joined concerned parents and students in calling for the resignation of Superintendent Scott Ziegler in the wake of an email that surfaced last week.

In an exclusive statement to Fox News, John Beatty, the Catoctin District member of the board, accused Ziegler of “withholding information for political gain” when it came to an alleged sexual assault against a female student in a girls restroom on May 28.

“My heart breaks every time I hear about the assaults in our schools,” Beatty told Fox News in an email statement. “I could never imagine my daughter coming home from school and telling me something like what happened. But the fact remains. You don’t go to the press during an ongoing investigation, especially when it’s dealing with student privacy.”

“No matter the incident, I trust the superintendent and his staff perform their jobs and protect our students,” Beatty added.

Even so, he accused Ziegler of withholding information in order to protect the controversial pro-transgender policy 8040.

“I believe no updates were given because the superintendent was working to aggressively pass a policy that would have allowed unrestricted access of biological males to female restrooms,” Beatty wrote. “He didn’t provide information because if it came out that there was an assault in the bathroom, the transgender policy wouldn’t have passed.”

The board member noted that he did not get “a full picture on what happened” until “just a few weeks ago.”

“I demanded a full investigation,” Beatty noted. “And now our superintendent must resign immediately. Withholding information for political gain is unacceptable and disqualifying.”

He concluded his message by encouraging concerned parents and students.

“So parents and students, I hear you all, I’m standing with you, and I will continue to fight for you,” Beatty wrote. “I will oppose any policy that jeopardizes your child’s safety and education. Stay in the fight and know someone is listening to your concerns.”

“You have buried a sexual assault to protect your precious 8040 policy,” Carrie Michon, a grandmother of Loudoun County children, accused the school board, referencing a pro-tr… (Read more)
