Parents are the primary educator of children, n not the state. I strongly oppose any legislation that permits children to do anything without parental consent. I strongly oppose any legislation that allows the state to teach anything to children that the parents can not opt out of. Perhaps your time would better served pouring your resources into getting children back into school and teaching them in the middle of an ongoing pandemic. Focusing on this instead when children are struggling to learn basic academics is negligent and shows a lack of interest for children in Fairfax County. Perhaps time would be better served focusing on what is ailing more Fairfax County children currently and not a small number - poverty due to a struggling economy, lack of a learning environment, mental health issues due to lack of peer interactions, etc.
