Dan Carney writes an accurate account of what is occurring in Fairfax County, Virginia. The school board, engaging in socio-economic balancing is gearing up to re-draw the school district boundaries, so middle and upper middle class children will be forced to attend the troubled South Lakes High School in Reston.
Reston, a planned community, is home to government housing projects for low or no income families. Reston has problems attracting families to invest in the community due to its low performing schools with a long history of problems.
The Fairfax County School Board has not allowed public discourse and parents are becoming enraged. So called public meetings have been controlled by the school board and parents have not been allowed to voice their opposition.
Many parents are turning to the an internet forum, the Fairfax Underground, to vent their frustrations.

How would you like to bust your ass all your life to afford a house in a good neighborhood, and then have these leftist losers bus your kid to the hood to attend school with the offspring of a bunch of welfare queens?
Erm... that wouldn’t be happening to my kids. They’d be out of those schools in a nanosecond. Home school, or, heck, I’d *start* a private school.
...OR why don’t the kids and family of those WHO VOTED (LEFTISTS) FOR THIS SOCIALIST kumbaya scheme to have their OWN kids attend that school?
I wonder who voted in these leftists losers on the school board? Are any of these school board members speaking up about this abomination? Oh well.... people who elect scumbag Democrats get exactly what they deserve. I only hope that now that they've fouled their own nest they don't move to my area.

Back in the 60’s when Reston was being built, everyone in No. VA rolled their eyes and knew this socialist nirvana was going to be nothing but trouble. We saw it as a trailer-trash magnet regardless of how “well-planned” the community was.
i have no clue what goes on in the pub schools.
