"9 one. This is WTO P news. G 53, Ian S rottgen began his tenure as chair of the loud county school board this week and remains focused on helping students despite fallout from an investigation into the school system's handling of two sexual assaults by the same student at two schools in 2021. He told he tells WTO he tunes out some of the outside noise. I view being chair of the school board at this time as a true public service in a extremely challenging environment when there's unprecedented attacks on public education. Ian sirotkin started his term on the loudoun county school board in January 2020, and between the pandemic and public schools being thrust into the spotlight, it's been quite eventful. But still, he found the prospect of serving as board chair exciting. Every night that I can walk out of a school board meeting and feel like I helped students that day, that's what I'm in it for, and that's those are the days that I look forward to. He's proud of several recent accomplishments, including changing the budget so that students wouldn't have to pay for their first few AP exams. There's strong research that shows that waving the cost of AP fees dramatically increases participation in the exams at the end of the year. We got data after the first year of that being in place to show that that was completely true when we had a huge percentage point increase in the number of students who were taking and passing AP exams. The school system also increased bus driver salaries, so it didn't face a shortage as dramatic as other school systems have. Now his attention is focused on hiring a new superintendent to replace Scott ziegler, who was fired in December after investigation into the county's handling of two sexual assaults. Has a search firm as expected to be in place by the end of January and expects a new leader to be hired before the end of the school year. He remains inspired to serve the community, even though. I don't think anything about the last four years has been what I expected it to be. Scott

"At 7 O four now, while looking for ways to improve, that's the message from the loudoun county school board, it held its first meeting last night in response to a grand jury's scathing report over the how that school system handled two sexual assaults committed by the same student last year. Emotions ran high as the mother of one of the assault victims spoke to the school board face to face. From the very beginning, we were determined as parents to not let the loudoun county school system sweep what happened to our daughter in another parent's daughter under the rug. Her testimony came as the board began considering recommendations from the grand jury, among other things looking into how there can be more transparency surrounding security incidents on campuses. Robert falcone, an attorney for the school system says this is just the start of a long process. So we're going to move on to these recommendations, and that's where the process begins, but it sure isn't going to end there. Nick, I know, he doubled news. In prince George's county over 18,000 parents across the school district showed up last night to hear plans for better student safety. It comes just a week after a shooting at a student at suitland high school that injured one student. Any student found in possession of a weapon will face disciplinary actions up to expulsion. Police say 14 year old shot and injured another teenager last Thursday and now prince George's county school CEO, Monica goldson says they're looking to hire additional security staff in their next budget. They'll also look at technology to improve safety, but they're not metal detectors. So we are actually looking at more advanced artificial intelligence. Some parents showed concerns about violence, bullying, and random attacks. Mask was taken off and he was kicked. Maybe we need to institute amongst the children, deescalation, training. Luke Luke or WTO pinos. Sigh of relief in this area, as a government shutdown looming this week has probably been avoided. Those leading the negotiations have said that they reached a framework that would allow them time to complete the work on a bill now. Congress is facing a midnight Friday deadline to pass the spending bill that would prevent a partial government shutdown. The House and Senate are now expected to pass another short term measure to keep the government running through December 23rd. That'll give it negotiators time to complete the work on a full year Bill. Washington capital star Alex Ovechkin skated into history last night in a game against the Chicago Blackhawks. Alex

The Washington Post now says some members are targeted targeted by those reports had already left a board by the time the state investigation was released last month.

Why Virginia's Election Has Huge National Implications

"Joe Biden's numbers are upside down, and it is heavily impacting the now battleground state of Virginia. Tomorrow voters head to the polls. Well, I think they vote early in Virginia. I don't know how they do, but I still think they have in person voting in Virginia more than other states. According to RealClearPolitics dot com, Joe Biden's favorable rating is 44 unfavorable rating is 50 6 points in the deficit 6 points. 50% of the country as an unfavorable view of Joe Biden and the latest polls out of Virginia everybody, which can be a bellwether state in ways that are very significant. Virginia governor, according to the Trafalgar group, young Ken up two points, Fox 5 D.C. insider, which I trust local polls a lot with this up two points. Term mcauliffe is going on a press campaign, play cut it. They're talking about this critical race theory. And as I said before, and I'll say it again, it's never been taught in Virginia. And I really hate it because it's a racist dog whistle obtained from the loudoun county school board and invoice from that firm, the equity showing a charge for coaching and meetings focused on CRT. And excerpt of an email from former school superintendent states that while loudon county has not officially adopted CRT, some of its teachings align with the CRT ideology. That's pretty straightforward. Now, the polls are all over the place. So I don't want to say that it's guaranteed that junk and is going to win. The recent polls show him up, but there is a pall over the weekend by Roanoke college at mcauliffe one. There is another one from Washington Post that in the cauliflower up one, and you better believe that fairfax county and in loudon county, they're gonna pull out every type of shenanigans and tomfoolery and shadiness that they can concoct everybody. That is a real thing and it's going they are going to pull it all out. But I just want to make sure that everyone understands the significance of what is happening in Virginia right now is that you have a candidate that was not polling well. You've a candidate that in the Virginia race was down significantly. If you look to the RealClearPolitics average polls in Virginia. Mcauliffe was down in the average. I mean, I'm sorry, junkin was down 6 points. 6 points at the beginning of September. He was down in the average by 6 points. Now the average has him up two

Loudoun County School Board Uses Deceitful Tactics to Pass Marxist Policies

"Deceitful kind of politics. Past these policies or kids will commit suicide. In fact, if you oppose them, you're responsible. Their blood is on your hands. And you're to sit down and shut up. And as usual, they are lying to you. Because that's what they do there, the left, they can never get their policies through by being honest. They either have to lie or they have to roll tanks down the street and take control. That's what Marxists do. This week in that Loudon County, Washington, D C suburb, They voted to approve transgender rules and they used all those manipulative tactics every single one that I laid out. That's how the debates go. It's just about dignity and respect its to ensure Children feel safe and accepted and affirmed. It's just about pronouns and bathrooms. They'll tell you And if you speak up against us, you're a bigot and you're empowering the bullies. And then they steamroll it through. They jammed the policies through And I'll tell you it's only to promote inclusiveness.

Loudoun County School Board Votes to Push Transgender, Marxist Agenda

"From without All the tremendous gains we've made over the last four or five years under President Trump are vanishing. The tremendous nation that was established by our founding. Is going to be pulled down like one of those monuments over the summer. We will cease being mostly a capitalist country and we will become mostly a socialist economic system. We're indoctrinating our Children on Marxism and the American Marxist spawned movements. Loudon County, Virginia yesterday. The school board. Voted. To impose the transgender agenda. On public school students. On top of the critical race theory agenda. Those of you who understand this have read American Marxism are going to him.

See this is being ignored. But not in American Marxism. After people at the meeting report reportedly started speaking over public commenters and refused to cooperate. One person was arrested. There was at least one person, injured authority said. You're going to see how law abiding citizens are going to be brutalized. Whereas black lives matter and teeth and so forth are allowed to do pretty much whatever they want to do. There are no details yet on the arrest or what the person is being charged for another person was issued a summons on a trespassing charge. Trespassing charge. Trespassing charge. You kidding me? The Loudon County School board ended the public comments section of its June 22 meeting on a unanimous vote after chair Brenda Sheridan. Repeatedly warned the attendees in the boardroom. That loud public demonstration highlighted the decorum of the meeting. Wasn't this a mostly peaceful protest, Mr Producer.
