VIDEO: County Parents Discuss the FCPS “War on Merit”

Fairfax GOP Vice Chairman for Outreach Vinson Palathingal recently hosted a lively and informative virtual conversation about the “woke Left’s war” on Thomas Jefferson High School of Science and Technology. Affectionately known as “TJ,” the public magnet school is ranked #1 in the country by U.S. News & World Report. Notwithstanding the school’s 79% minority enrollment, leftists now want to replace its current merit-based admission policies with race-based criteria.

Palathingal was joined by Fairfax GOP Chairman Steve Knotts; Do Better FCPS founder Sue Zoldak; TJ parent Glenn Miller; and investigative journalist Asra Nomani. “There is a very secretive effort to basically destroy this very special school we have in Fairfax County named Thomas Jefferson School of Science and Technology,” Nomani lamented. “It’s an attack on the families and the students that go to that school.”
