Model policies

Schools curriculum should not include any sexually driven content.  The public school system  has shown an inability to teach sexual education using biological facts. Meanwhile students are failing to learn reading, writing and arithmetic.

"Statewide, passing rates on the SOL tests fell by double-digit percentages from the last time they were administered, in 2019, according to data released Thursday by the Virginia Department of Education. Passing rates among all students for English tests fell 11.5%, for science tests, 27.2%, and for math tests, 34.1%."
