Taxpayer-Funded Mailer Promotes School Bond
Local mother and parental rights advocate Stephanie Lundquist-Arora is blowing the whistle on Fairfax County Public Schools’ latest abuse of taxpayer dollars, after the district was caught mailing literature to voters in support of this year’s controversial bond referendum. “Parents have known for a while that the school district’s administration is deviating from this mission to be overtly political, but we must definitively draw the line when it uses our taxpayer dollars to fund election initiatives,” Lundquist-Arora writes.
Aside from covering the costs of the election material and the postage, the 181,000-student public school district also used student data for the mailers. The return address was the school the child residing in the house attends. The child’s name was listed under the voter’s name as the addressee on the envelope. Basically, the school district is manipulating voters into opening the envelope because they suspect there would be information, perhaps an interim report, about their children coming from their schools.
