Opinion

Based on the work of scholars such as Carol Burris and UVA’s Carol Ann Tomlinson, we know that early exposure to rigorous content is linked to student success in advanced classes.

Regarding the now covered mural on St. George, I would like to commend the Gazette’s spin on the absolutely ridiculous fast action taken by VDOT to eliminate community artwork and grassroots action, and also comment on the subsequent letter sent by a Crozet resident condemning the street mural.

We aim for our kids to learn tolerance and empathy for those who are not like them, and also...
On February 2, 2022, I called Congressman Good’s office to request answers to questions I had regarding his pamphlet, titled “Working to Keep America Free.” I asked his staff member why he would sponsor a bill to deregulate silencers on guns when the International Association of Chiefs of Police want silencers regulated in order to better protect citizens.
