Elizabeth Schultz attacked by Leftist; School Board Meeting Thurs. 4/27

Dear Concerned Parents and Educators,

It’s been a busy two weeks since my last email. We are excited to announce a panel discussion hosted by Family Research Council (FRC) called Transgender Ideology in Schools: Parents Fight Back.  Elizabeth Schultz, Springfield Representative on the Fairfax County School Board; Josh Hetlzer of Family Foundation of Virginia; Cathy Ruse of Family Research Council, and yours truly will participate in the panel discussion Friday, May 5, at high noon. If you can come, we would love to meet you there. Registration is linked above.

Concerned Parents and Educators continues to advocate for the safety ALL students in Fairfax County Public Schools when it comes to the “gender identity” issue. Obviously our message is effective and we are hitting a nerve. Blue Virginia, a left-wing website struggling for relevancy by attacking anything that moves, has once again attacked hero of Fairfax County parents, Elizabeth Schultz. Blue Virginia’s ridiculous charges against Mrs. Schultz are too preposterous to repeat. They now malign her for daring to talk about ideas at a public event. Oh, the humanity!

UC Berkeley Riot

Perhaps Mr. Feld has forgotten the insanity inspired by Southern Poverty Law Center’s “designation” of Family Research Council as a “hate group.” We know all too well the violence that is unleashed by the Left Wing these days, like at  UC Berkeley.

Rather than fanning the flames of hatred, Lowell Feld would do well to encourage his friends to control themselves. Words have consequences.

But this kind of hysteria is nothing new from the likes of “Lowkell” (Mr. Feld’s brave nom de plume). We saw a hissy fit thrown by our out-of-touch, out-of-control school board April 6, when they ignored standard procedures to pass a weaponized Diversity Statement laid out for them by the Fairfax Board of Supervisors. Fairfax County Democrats’ use of “Diversity” as a political tool of division makes the statement a little less than sincere. Because only they get to define diversity. They certainly ignore the diverse community of parents objecting to adding gender identity to nondiscrimination clause. Over 70 parents from many different communities have addressed the school board since September. But the school board is tone deaf on this issue.

Please plan to show your support for Mrs. Schultz at the next board meeting April 27, Thursday  night, Luther Jackson Middle School, 3020 Gallows Road, Fairfax, VA, 7PM. Or tune in on FCPS TV. Emails to Mrs. Schultz would be welcome, too.

As always, we deeply appreciate your unfailing support of our efforts. Hope to see you tomorrow night. Or at FRC May 5.

Sincerely,

Meg Kilgannon
Executive Director

CPEFC Media Release in Response to SCOTUS Stay in G. G. v. Gloucester County School Board

For Immediate Release

Wednesday, August 3, 2016

 

CONCERNED PARENTS AND EDUCATORS OF FAIRFAX COUNTY

STATEMENT OF MEG KILGANNON, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

In response to the Supreme Court stay issued today in Gloucester County School Board v. G.G., Concerned Parents and Educators of Fairfax County (CPEFC) released the following statement.

“The Supreme Court’s decision protecting Gloucester County from the Obama Administration’s overreach is a positive development for all families and children. A reasoned conversation about this difficult topic is much needed. The Administration used heavy handed tactics of the radical left to avoid conversation and debate. The facts are not on their side. People need to discuss the consequences and science of turning boys into girls and girls into boys. There are safety factors for all children involved, and privacy issues for all concerned. Only then can we craft policy that protects ALL children and respects ALL families,” said Meg Kilgannon, Executive Director of CPEFC.

“Our own Fairfax County School Board was quick to jump on the bandwagon, passing Regulation 1450 without debate and over significant parental objection. It took them 10 years to change the school start times, but this feat of social engineering was accomplished in just a few weeks, by school board fiat. Now our out of touch, out of control Fairfax County School Board will hear diverse opinions on this topic, not just a select few promoted behind the scenes by school board members with an axe to grind,” she added.

“We look forward to engaging all sectors of the diverse tax paying public in Fairfax County in a conversation about this sensitive and difficult issue. We hope the elected members of the Fairfax County School Board will be open to hearing ALL views in the future.”

(2) discussions and understanding from properly licensed persons of any building code compliance requirements and costs,
