It was only going to be a short time until the angry parents busted out their wallets to take on the school system.
The truth of the matter is they will probably get their way because as soon as FCPS gets slapped with a lawsuit they back down. See the turn it in controversy, various student suspensions, etc.
While I dont agree with the way the redistricting has been done, its outrageous that parents wont have their kids sent to South Lakes HS or any other school, for that matter, and that they have their heads so far up their asses that they will spend atrocious amounts of $$$ and time to get their kids to go to Oakton.
What i do find funny is that the parents group has 800 members and they have been recruiting for what, since November or so? The Dave Kori snow day call gained over 10,000 students in less than a week.
THe lawsuit says the school board's decision was "arbitrary and capricious and undertaken in excess of its authority" Thats the biggest pile of bullshit i have seen in a long time (and I have seen some large piles of bull shit). The redistricting was not fucking ARBITRARY, half the schools are overcrowded
. The decision was not capricious (impulsive), they do one every few years. And lastly it was IN NO FUCKING WAY IN EXCESS OF THE SCHOOL BOARD'S AUTHORITY" THE FUCKING STATE LAW TELLS THEM TO DO A REDISTRICTING STUDY.
I am pleased to see that the budget for legal services for FCPS has doubled. Maybe this suit will get thrown out.
