Fairfax County “Mama Bear” Asra Nomani recently joined WABC’s “This Is America with Rich Valdes” to discuss the increasing use of divisive, neo-Marxist critical race theory (CRT) in the nation’s schools. “There is a political machine that wants to control the schools and thus the kids,” Nomani said. “They have an agenda that is not in sync with the parents.”
Much of the conversation focused on the battle over merit versus race-based admissions to Fairfax County’s Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (“TJ”).
Today, a federal judge ruled that Fairfax County school officials violated the law by changing admissions requirements at the nation’s top public school to deliberately reduce the number of Asian-American students enrolled.
Last March, a coalition of parents, students, alumni, and community members filed a lawsuit challenging admissions changes at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJ).
On Friday afternoon, January 21, as new Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin finalized guidance on his executive order allowing parental choice on whether students wear masks in school, Fairfax County Public Schools Superintendent went rogue and issued a 34-page “Principal Briefing” PowerPoint at a meeting with school administrators, ordering them to suspend students from school for a “Dress Code” violation if they don’t wear masks in school, according to a copy of the briefing received by Parents Defending Education.

There is a parable that says “For such a time as this…” a leader emerges, prepared for the moment by all of that person’s life experiences before.
Scores of parents rallied Thursday night outside Luther Jackson Middle School, where the Fairfax County School Board held a meeting. Their stated cause was to “eliminate porn” from county schools, following a local mother’s bombshell revelations about “X-rated” materials in public, government-run school libraries.
County parents in attendance made clear they would not be intimidated by Attorney General Merrick Garland’s insinuations that critics of rogue school boards are “domestic terrorists.”
From its headquarters here on Duke Street, just north on the Potomac River from George Washington’s Mt. Vernon home, the National School Boards Association declared war on an unexpected enemy that has been the fabric of America since its birth hundreds of years ago: parents.
In a September 30 letter to President Joe Biden, the National School Boards Association sent a vitriolic missive to the president, with a laundry list of allegations…
Last night, Thursday, September 23, a brave Fairfax High School mother, Stacy Langton, walked up to the podium at a regular meeting of the Fairfax County School Board, carrying with her two books and printouts from images in the books.
She had watched a Texas school board meeting at which parents read from two books that they had found in their school library…
Harry Jackson, the first Black president-elect of the PTSA at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, stood before a crowd of parents here at Luther Jackson Middle School last week to oppose the divisive ideology of critical race theory that has put forward flawed policies in K-12 schools across the country, including separating students into racial “affinity spaces” and eliminating merit admissions to TJ, America’s No. 1 high school.

Outside last week’s meeting of the Fairfax County School Board, two rallies were held. One consisted of parents opposed to critical race theory (CRT). The other represented a very different, “woke” point of view. The “woke” rally featured a speaker named Michelle Leete, who fulminated against those who disagreed with her revolutionary worldview: “Let them die. Don’t let these uncomfortable people deter us from our bold march forward.”
