A teacher in Virginia, Laura Morris, quit her job during a chaotic school board meeting. The meeting was all about Critical Race Theory, which is a big debate. Laura was upset about the focus on things like “equity trainings” and politics in the school. She felt the school was trying to control certain groups of people, like white, Christian women like herself. So, she decided to leave her teaching job because she couldn’t agree with what the school was doing.

Morris, who had been a teacher in the district for five years, said she was tired of the school pushing political ideas onto kids. She didn’t agree with what the school was doing.

This issue is part of a bigger debate about Critical Race Theory (CRT). In Loudoun County, people are arguing a lot about it. School meetings are getting tense, with parents disagreeing strongly about what kids should learn.

Some people say CRT is important because it teaches about America’s history of race in a different way. But others say it’s wrong and divides people.

This school board has had other problems recently. A teacher got suspended because he wouldn’t use certain words about gender. He said it was because of his religion. After a court said he should get his job back, the school said they’d fight it.

They also talked about whether kids who are transgender should be able to use the bathrooms and join activities based on their gender. This caused a big fight, and they had to wait to decide.
