Parents know what is best for their children. As the only woman and mother running for Congress in Virginia’s 11th District, I offer a unique perspective and experience. Education is paramount and it is critical that each parent has a choice as to how their children are educated.
Parents have a right to know and be fully engaged in what is taking place in the classroom and not be barred from having a voice at the table. The parent is the first teacher in the home and chooses to entrust each student to schools. The Parent has the final say in what is best for children. The schools shall never take on the role of a co-parent in a child’s life.
Parents send their children to school to learn – reading, writing, math, history – to be educated and not indoctrinated.
While Fairfax County Public Schools were closed for ever a year, the incumbent sat on his hands. I met with concerned parents and advocated for schools to open. While students across the country went back to school in the Fall of 2020, students in the 11th district suffered significant and irreparable learning loss through remote learning. VA-11 needs an advocate for school choice with a coupon and excellence in education in Congress.
Parental involvement is paramount and never mocked. I stand with parents in VA-11 and across the country.
