Before we consider the third question we included in our voter guide for the following election, Chairman, Prince William County School Board, At Large, we have an admission. None of the candidates responded to our survey. Therefore, we have decided not to release results.
So what will we do? With this post I have provided a complete list of the questions. In addition, we have included news articles that you can use to determine how the candidates might have answered our questions.
Here are the questions.
- Do you support or oppose allowing home school students to participate in school sports programs?
- Do you support or oppose allowing the school board to have taxing authority to impose taxes dedicated to Prince William county schools?
- Do you support or oppose giving school boards more control over the hiring and firing of teachers and administrators?
- Do you support or oppose using only abstinence-based sex education curricula?
- Do you support or oppose teaching that “sex is assigned at birth” in Family Life Education classes?
- Do you support or oppose allowing students to use school restrooms, locker rooms, showers of the gender with which they identify, even when inconsistent with their biological sex?
