A year ago, Loudoun County, Virginia, was launched into a political maelstrom after a private Facebook group named “The Anti-Racist Parents of Loudoun County” was exposed by the Daily Wire for plotting against parents who were speaking up at school board meetings.

Six school board members, various school administrators, teachers, and Soros-backed Commonwealth Attorney Buta Biberaj were all a part of the group.

The activities of this online mob led to a successful campaign against the school board members who were involved. Parents gathered more than 25,000 signatures for their removal in court. One member has already resigned, and two more will appear in Loudoun County Circuit Court on May 23 for motion hearings in their removal cases.

(Snip)

As it turned out, the lawyers brought in to do the “independent review” were already on retainer with LCPS, casting doubts on both sides about whether this would really be an independent review. Those doubts were bolstered in January when LCPS refused to release the results of the “independent review” based on attorney-client privilege. Fight for Schools, the organization that I lead, has filed a lawsuit to force the release of that report, and we will argue that case in Loudoun County Circuit Court on April 20.

Still, parents in Loudoun County should have hope. Last week, Loudoun County Circuit Court scheduled further hearings on May 23 in the removal cases against two school board members. It was also revealed last week that a special grand jury has convened to investigate Loudoun County Public Schools.

And Gov. Glenn Youngkin recently amended a bill that, if passed, would allow Loudoun County residents to vote for new school board members in 2022 , a year earlier than scheduled. Those who oppose that amendment will have to explain why more elections are a bad idea, especially after everything that has happened in Loudoun this past year.

One way or another, the battle of Loudoun County is fast approaching a resolution. Will special interests, activism by the social media mob, and the rights of the woke bureaucracy win the day? Or will parental rights, transparency, and accountability prevail?

Go ahead and put some money down on the latter.

The America First Legal (AFL), is currently facing Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) in court for the “violations of parental rights to control the upbringing of their children."
