A Loudoun County, Virginia, teacher abruptly quit her job during a school board meeting after she railed against the teaching of critical race theory in public school classrooms.

A report from WUSA-TV detailed the tense environment at Tuesday night’s school board meeting, noting that more than 150 people were scheduled to speak in person about “transgender policy, [the] new in-school mask mandate, vaccines, virtual learning, and critical race theory.”

Laura Morris, a former fifth-grade teacher at Lucketts Elementary School in Leesburg, Virginia, quit in front of the Loudoun County School Board as she tearfully protested against controversial policies including CRT, transgender locker rooms, and more.

Sobbing, Morris said, “School board, I quit! I quit your politics. I quit your trainings and I quit being a cog in a machine that tells me to push highly politicized agendas on our most vulnerable constituents — the children. I will find employment elsewhere. I encourage all parents and staff in this country to flood the private schools.”
