WATCH: Loudoun County Teacher Tearfully Resigns at School Board Meeting Over ‘Highly-Politicized Agendas’

A Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) teacher tearfully resigned during a school board meeting over the “highly-politicized agendas” being pushed on students.

The Virginia teacher, Laura Morris, gave her powerful resignation speech during the public comment period at Tuesday’s board meeting.

“Within the last year, I was 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 said.

“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.”

The fifth-grade teacher said that she would not honor the district’s pronoun policy requiring teachers to play along with their student’s pronoun preferences.

“School board, I quit,” she said.

“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,” Morris continued.

A gym teacher in the district, Tanner Cross, was previously suspended for refusing to “affirm that a biological boy can be a girl and vice versa.”

The county’s school board meetings have also been on the front lines of the battle against Critical Race Theory being pushed on students.
