The superintendent at a major school district in Virginia is eyeing critical race theory training, Parents Defending Education highlighted in an incident report. The district has also contracted for four years with an influential New York consulting group that could get millions of dollars to push the racist ideology on a district where parents have been strongly objecting for years.
Scott Brabrand, superintendent for Fairfax County Public Schools in Fairfax, Va., which operates with a $3 billion budget and oversees 222 institutions, sent a survey to parents that said “FCPS will begin by revising the existing Controversial Issues Policy and developing a new Anti-Racism, Anti-Bias Education Curriculum Policy.”
The repeal of the “Controversial Issues Policy” would create a breeding ground for unequal treatment in the district, vice president of Parents Defending Education Asra Q. Nomani told The Federalist. That policy is one of the few that has so far protected students from even worse racially charged teachings, she said.
“The way the controversial policy works is that if you teach anything that is ‘controversial,’ you have to have fair presentation of material,” Nomani said. “That is the only defense we’ve had against this indoctrination. It’s just sick. It’s a multi-year re-education program from top to bottom in Fairfax County Public Schools. The fact that they have to revise their policy about controversial issues is such a red flag that they’re doing something wrong.”
The survey was crafted by NYC Leadership Academy, a group in New York that trains educators through the “Aspiring Principals Program” on “dismantling systemic inequities in schools.” Vendor payments obtained by Parents Defending Education show two payments for a Chief Equity Officer amounting to $48,500. It is unclear whether this sum comprises all the trainings or a few. The cost of the survey has not been revealed and the consulting group did not respond to a request for comment.
In addition to assisting the district with hiring personnel, the consulting group received from Fairfax schools an undisclosed total sum for a 21-step critical race theory program for this academic year. In the notice of the award pricing schedule sent on March 11, Fairfax highlights a number of services it has purchased. This includes funding for “Building School and Family Coalitions,” “Defining Culturally Responsive Curriculum,” “Equity Simulations,” “Coaching for Equitable Practice,” and more.
The survey sent out to parents contained 35 items. Below are some of the statements provided. Parents were asked to say whether they strongly agreed, agreed, disagreed, or strongly disagreed with each. The items are slanted toward the far-left viewpoint on race and identity.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
