And Bill Kristol is the leading conservative in Virginia
In the debate last night between Gubernatorial candidates, Republican Glenn Youngkin expressed his view that parents should be involved in their children’s education to which Democrat Terry McAuliffe replied,
“I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach”
Wow. So our kids are stuck learning CRT and very explicit sex acts because the educrats want those things to be taught in our government schools even over parents’ strong objections? (And they wonder why enrollment in public schools has dropped.)
McAuliffe made the remarks in response to Youngkin’s argument that parents should be more involved in the decisions of local school districts.
“I agree with your conclusion Terry, that we should let local school districts actually make these decisions,” Youngkin said. “But we must ask them to include concepts of safety and privacy and respect in the discussion. And we must demand that they include parents in this dialogue.
“What we’ve seen over the course of this last 20 months is our school systems refusing to engage with parents. In fact in Fairfax County this past week, we watched parents so upset because there was such sexually explicit material in the library they had never seen, it was shocking,” he continued. “And in fact, you vetoed the bill that would have informed parents that they were there. You believe school systems should tell children what to do. I believe parents should be in charge of their kids’ education.”
More on Youngkin’s education remarks from abcnews:
“Teaching our children about racism in our schools is a real challenge,” Youngkin said, echoing national conservatives’ concerns about teaching about systemic racism — often shorthanded incorrectly as critical race theory. “I think we recognize that Virginia and America have chapters that are abhorrent. We also have great chapters. We need to teach our children real history.
“We need to teach our children to come together and have dreams that they can aspire and go get,” he continued. “We don’t need to teach our children to view everything through a lens of race and then pit them against one another, so that their dreams are, in fact, stolen from them.”‘

For a laugh, you can go here and watch McAuliffe refer to Bill Kristol as “the leading conservative in America”!
