Please Protect Me!
Please protect Virginia’s teachers from this subjective, arbitrary, and indefensible assault on teachers. While we always place the needs of each individual student at the forefront of our decisions, we also need to be able to work by following guidelines consistently applicable to all students. Demanding that teachers follow the whimsical nature of a child, without parental guidance, input, and confirmation places us at risk of both legal and civil action. Children are wards of their parents first and the state second, only when which the parent has neglected to meet the minimum state standards of care.
