What is the purpose of public school than to act as a place for students to safely grow and learn, both about themselves and the world around them? These proposed policies not only stifle that pure and simple goal, they actively attack it. School staff is trained and works tirelessly to gain the necessary experience and trust of their students. Parents have any number of organizations, religious or other, to participate with their children and instill their individual family values. Virginia already has a program for families who feel strongly about their children's education and being closely involved with it: They're home-schooled. Public school is for all. ALL means everyone.
Not every child is born into or able to live in a home environment where they are adequately supported. If you doubt that, have a conversation with a CPS worker. Commenters who express support for the policies by insisting "schools should educate only!" grossly fail to realize the breadth of education empowering students today. More than that, oversimplified declarations like that completely ignore the role public schools play as undeniable safety nets for communities. It's where we catch (recognize) and pull up(help) kids who need more to eat, kids who need appropriate clothing or school supplies, kids who need extra time to master an area of study -- all that IN ADDITION to learning numerous subjects and how to socialize with people who are alike AND different than them. Then consider the counselors and teachers and staff who act as the eyes and ears, alerting our communities when students are experiencing any number or concerning issues outside of school. Saving a child from an abusive or neglectful home environment probably isn't considered "educating only," but would you rather the school staff ignored a problem that won't appear on a standardized test? Empowering teachers does not mean parents are restricted in any way from participating in their children's lives.
