Fairfax School Board Member: Opt Out of Intrusive FCPS Survey

Yesterday, Elizabeth Schultz, a FCPS school board member from the Springfield District, encouraged parents to opt out of the upcoming FCPS Youth Survey, which will be administered to 6th, 8th, and 10th grade students in fall 2016, and appeared to support a measure that would abolish the survey.

On Twitter, Schultz used the hashtag "#OptOut" and criticized the survey as containing "assumptively crafted, probative questions."


If you look at the actual survey, you will quickly see that she is right. Questions such as "how often do you use cocaine" and "how did you get the alcohol you drink" clearly are worded to inflate the actual rates of drug and alcohol use in Fairfax County.

It is not clear why they want to inflate the rates of dangerous behavior such as drugs, alcohol, and sex, but here are two main possibilities:

1. To increase outside funding for "drug and alcohol education programs," some of which will inevitably end up in the pockets of the FCPS establishment and their contractors.

2. To help the reelection campaigns of incumbent school board members. School board members do not come up for reelection until 2019, so there is plenty of time to publish the inflated rates, maybe for the next two or three years, and then reword the survey so rates decrease. Then incumbent school board members can take credit for the "decrease", which will improve their prospects of reelection.

Of course, these are just theories, but they are the two most compelling possibilities in my view as to why the school system is wording the questions in this way.

Overall, the survey is completely unscientific and intrusive. Topics of the survey include...

  • Alcohol use (questions 39, 64, 85, 91, 92, 93, 94, 111, 112, 114, 118)
  • Cigarette use (questions 40, 82, 86, 87, 88, 89, 110, 115, 119)
  • Drug use (questions 41, 46, 83, 84, 90, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109, 113, 116, 117, 120, 121, 122)
  • Domestic violence (questions 47, 48, 62, 72)
  • Weapons (questions 55, 56, 57)
  • Sexual abuse (questions 61, 63, 71,73, 155, 156, 157, 158, 159, 160, 161, 162, 163)
  • Gangs (questions 66, 67, 68)
  • Suicide (questions 78, 79, 80)
  • Sex (questions 123, 124, 125, 126, 127, 128, 129, 130)
  • Eating disorders (questions 142, 143, 144)

The bureaucrats at 8115 Gatehouse Road are kidding themselves if they honestly believe that students are going to answer these kinds of questions accurately. Case in point: Question 130 asks students whether they are homosexual or heterosexual. According to an official FCPS report, eleven percent of Youth Survey respondents reported that they were homosexual. That figure is 400% higher than the official number reported by the Centers for Disease Control. 

Either that or FCPS is "adjusting" the survey results to fit their agenda. 

While there is an opt-out form available, it would be a better statement to simply refuse to complete the survey (if you are a student) or keep your child home (if you are a parent.) Sending a message is better than quietly opting out, and there is no guarantee that the opt-out forms will be respected. I (the ResistanceMedia founder) was INSIDE an FCPS school observing the survey being administered last year and teachers pressured students to complete the "voluntary" survey, in violation of FCPS rules.

A video shows an unidentified public school teacher firing a water pistol at an an image of President Donald J. Trump projected onto the classroom whiteboard.

The video was apparently taken during President Trump's inauguration, but was not posted to Twitter and YouTube until this evening.

As President Trump takes the stage, the teacher lunges towards the whiteboard and repeatedly fires the water pistol while screaming "DIE." She then begins whimpering and fires the pistol several more times. Students can be heard in the background saying "Hit him" as she fires at the projection of Trump.

Indoctrination Backfires: Today's High School Students Are Most Conservative in 70 Years

Numerous studies have confirmed that the high school students of today are the most politically conservative generation in the past 70 years, in spite of -- or perhaps because of -- the incessant leftist and Cultural Marxist propaganda disseminated through the public school system.

The first main survey to support this conclusion was conducted by marketing firm The Guild, which interviewed 2,000 14- and 15-year-olds late last year. The conclusions of the survey were shocking. 59 percent of "Generation Z" held conservative views on same-sex marriage, "transgender rights", and the legalization of marijuana.

"According to the report, which was published in The Times, 59 percent of Generation Z respondents said they leaned toward the conservative end of the spectrum. Only the Silent Generation was more conservative than this group.By comparison, 83 percent of Millennials and 85 percent of Generation X respondents described themselves as “quite liberal” or “very lib…

Falls Church High School Administrators Distributing Anti-Trump Protest Symbols to Teachers, Students

Update 11/21/2016: An anonymous comment on ResistanceMedia.org, claiming to be one of the students pictured in this article, has asked for the removal of one of the images. The image was publicly posted on Twitter by the student, but to respect the privacy of the student, the image has been blurred to hide identifying facial features. 

Photos circulated via Twitter show "safety pins" distributed to students and teachers by the staff and "student leadership" (i.e. puppet government) of Falls Church High School. The "safety pin" is a symbol first used in the aftermath of the United Kingdom's historic "Brexit" vote to leave the European Union and reclaim their national sovereignty. Now, after Donald J. Trump's electoral victory, anti-Trump protesters are using the safety pin to symbolize opposition to his policies and rhetoric.

From theIndependent Journal Review: A movement has started in the U.S. of people wearing a safety pin in order to d…
