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.”
