All communities are stronger together. We live, play, work, volunteer and support each other. The synergy created through one community funneling to one public high school propels the performance of that high school and knits the community even closer. Businesses, graduates, parents, community organizations and leaders all get involved and care about the outcome.
Changing school assignments in an attempt to retroactively accommodate unmanaged growth, artificially boost school performance data, and achieve one-dimensional diversity hurts communities, hurts schools, and masks problems rather than addresses them.
We want our school board and administration to do the hard work of implementing real solutions that actually address the issues of vulnerable students in struggling schools.
We want our school board and administration to recognize “redistricting” pulls apart communities, causes real world negative impacts, and most importantly, leaves the underlying problems unsolved.
Voices of Fairfax is not associated with a candidate running for the Fairfax County School Board, is not a part of any campaign group, and not affiliated with a political party. Our intention is to research, keep the community informed, and step up when we can make a difference. We will work with whoever is elected and the rest of the school board on the issues.
