Beth Barts, the infamous member of Loudoun County’s school board, has officially resigned after targeting parents who dared resist the school’s critical race theory curriculum.
Scott Ziegler, the superintendent of Virginia’s embattled Loudoun County Public Schools, announced that the school had failed Loudoun County’s parents and children. Barts resignation is the first step in amending for that mistake.
Ziegler said during a press conference on Friday that, “First, let me say to the families and students involved — my heart aches for you and I am sorry that we failed to provide the safe, welcoming, and affirming environment that we aspire to provide.”
Ultimately the resignation of Barts and the groveling apology of Ziegler may not be enough to avoid serious legal trouble.
Loudoun County Public Schools are being sued by the parent of a girl who was sexually assaulted by a boy wearing a skirt in school restrooms. The school attempted to cover the incident up which has ignited a firestorm.
What is happening in Loudoun County could spread nationwide. Many parents are discovering that school boards are taking actions without considering the interests of students and parents. Hopefully, Beth Barts is the first of many who will be forced to step down for failing American families.
