Parrott and his wife are long-time residents of Fairfax County, where two of his three children graduated from our public schools.)

Here’s a story we don’t like to share, but it’s true.
Beth McConnell, an art teacher at Mount Vernon Woods Elementary School in the Alexandria section of Fairfax County, lost her classroom due to an ever-increasing student population. So now she travels from one class to another, doing her very best under challenging circumstances.
Did you know that in Fairfax County, one of the wealthiest counties in the nation, 27,000 students use 1,137 temporary public school classrooms? And then there are teachers like Beth McConnell who has no classroom at all.

Last Wednesday morning, I attended a meeting called by Superintendent Garza that included all the leaders of Fairfax County Public Schools employee associations. The purpose was a briefing on the FY2015 budget and updates on where we are in the budget process.
Much of the information was not new to me as we have been to every work session and meeting about the budget process. And I was downright proud to share that the Fairfax Education Association would be activating our Budget Action plan at our Rep Meeting that day.
