Fifth-grade Loudon County, Virginia, teacher Laura Morris emotionally announced her resignation during a school board meeting Tuesday, citing the district’s “woke” policy changes.
“I have struggled with the idea of returning to school knowing that I’ll be working yet again with the school division that, despite its shiny tech and flashy salary, promotes political ideologies that do not square with who I am as a believer in Christ,” Morris stated.
She criticized the indoctrination to which the board forcibly subjects her and other teachers:
“Within the last year, I was [told] in one of my so-called equity trainings that White, Christian, able-bodied females currently have the power in our schools and ‘this has to change.’”
Morris says she’s forced to resign due to the new policies.
“Clearly, you’ve made your point. You no longer value me or many other teachers you’ve employed in this county. So since my contract outlines the power that you have over my employment in Loudoun County Public Schools, I thought it necessary to resign in front of you.”
“School board, I quit,” she stated. “I quit your policies, I quit your training, and I quit being a cog in a machine that tells me to push highly politicized agendas to our most vulnerable constituents – children.”
Magnificent! Bonus points for resigning publicly in this fashion rather than simply sending a letter—and for castigating the smug Marxists on this board as she did. This brave Christian has set an example we can all admire and follow!
Thanks to Bill Martin for alerting me to Ms. Morris’ heroism.5:30 pm on August 11, 2021 Email Becky Akers
