Glenn Youngkin's Complicated History on Critical Race Theory

  Glenn Youngkin's Complicated History on Critical Race Theory In an effort to court skeptical right-wing voters, investment firm exec turned Republican candidate for governor of Virginia Glenn Youngkin has made banning critical race theory from public schools a cornerstone of his campaign. But there are a couple of problems with Youngkin’s pledge. First, Virginia schools say CRT doesn’t appear in educational or training material. And second, just last year, Youngkin incentivized his employees to donate to organizations which champion the same social justice policies he now pledges to outlaw—and promised that his company would match those contributions.

After Loudoun County parents called for the resignation of the superintendent and members of the school board, the superintendent apologized and a board member resigned . Many parents remain unsatisfied. Youngkin spoke to a crowded room, with hundreds unable to enter due to the capacity Many in the crowd held signs reading "Parents for Youngkin ," sending a clear message on education. Youngkin also attacked the Department of Justice under President Biden, which directed to the FBI to investigate what the Justice Department called a "disturbing trend" of "threats of violence" at school

Parents groups in Loudoun County , Virginia, aren't holding back their condemnation of the school board after one member resigned and the superintendent apologized for the district's handling of two sexual assault allegations against a trans-identified male student. After initially denying that the first assault ever happened, LCPS Superintendent of Schools Scott Ziegler publicly apologized to the victims' families on Friday, soon after the father of the first student assaulted back in May filed a lawsuit against the school district.

BURKE, Va. – Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin promised to bring transparency, accountability, choice, and higher standards to the state's schools, condemning the Loudoun County School Board for allegedly covering up a male student's alleged sexual assault against a female student in a girls' restroom. The male student allegedly assaulted another girl at another school months later.

"A young girl was sexually assaulted in her school, and the administrators, those who were trusted with not only her education but her safety, tried to cover it up," Youngkin declared in his speech at the Burke Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department Tuesday night. "And they quietly moved the offender, an offender being prosecuted for sexual assault, to another school, where he was able to do it again. Two young girls have been sexually assaulted because our system, our system failed to protect them."

With Dems’ Advantage in Virginia Slipping Away, Terry McAuliffe Turns to Taylor Swift

  With Dems’ Advantage in Virginia Slipping Away, Terry McAuliffe Turns to Taylor Swift The Virginia governor’s race is tighter than expected in a state Joe Biden won by 10 points, and where former governor Terry McAuliffe was favored to return to the state house for a second term. Recent polls show the race within the margin of error. What most alarms Democrats is the lack of enthusiasm on their side and the surprising staying power of Republican Glenn Youngkin, a wealthy private equity investor who has managed to stay close enough to Trump by advocating for “election integrity” while remaining vague enough on abortion to not scare women in the northern Virginia suburbs.

• Via WJLA -- Loudoun County school officials are under fire once again. This time, parents want answers on how the school district is keeping their kids safe after two alleged sexual assaults occurred. Scott Smith, a 48-year-old parent from Leesburg whose daughter was allegedly the victim of an assault in a school bathroom, was arrested for obstruction of justice and disorderly conduct after trying to speak at a school board meeting. "My family has been unfortunately pulled into this nightmare," he told WJLA's 7News. "It made me quite emotional, hearing speaker after speaker say what had

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that there was a sexual assault case at the school dated May 28 that “involved a thorough 2-month-long investigation” that led to an arrest. Law enforcement officials said the prosecution was still pending court proceedings. Asked about assaults at schools, the officials said : “To my knowledge, we don’t have any record of assaults occurring in our restrooms,” adding that “the predator transgender student or person simply does not exist.” The alleged rapist in the May 28 is not transgender, of course, but “the point is kids are using

"As a Virginian, I'm heartbroken for these girls and their families," Youngkin said. "I'm heartbroken at how their government leaders failed them. As a father, I am ignited with an unwavering resolve to not just fix this but to hold those who have failed our children accountable."

  Virginia Guv Hopeful Glenn Youngkin Plays Footsie With the Far Right An event listing for the Virginia Tea Party’s “Backlash to Socialism” summit makes no mention of Glenn Youngkin. The aspiring governor is absent from a photo gallery of the event, and there’s not a peep about it on his Facebook page, where he posted pictures from a different event that same day. But Youngkin recorded an address that played at the event, which was sponsored by the far-right John Birch Society and featured a keynote speaker who went on a conspiratorial diatribe about supposed communist infiltration, according to videos reviewed by The Daily Beast.

A memorandum issued by Garland, which was released shortly after the National School Boards Association (NSBA) sent a letter to Biden claiming some clashes between school boards and parents may amount to "domestic terrorism," calls for the FBI to take the lead on a task force to address threats against school officials , including creating a centralized way to report such threats.

"Instead of investigating parents, the Department of Justice should be investigating those who have covered up a heinous crime on our students," the Republican declared.

Youngkin laid Virginia's education failures at the hands of his opponent, Democrat Terry McAuliffe, who previously served as governor between 2014 and 2018.

"Terry McAuliffe had his chance and he failed," the Republican argued.

Younkin faulted McAuliffe for lowering educational standards, "so he could claim fewer failing schools." Indeed, in 2015, McAuliffe signed a bill ordering a deemphasis on standardized test results in accrediting Virginia public schools. While 88 schools were denied accreditation under the old standards in 2017, no school has been denied accreditation since the new standards went into effect in 2018.

"I'm not afraid, I'll be honest," Youngkin responded.

He cited horrific stats on math and reading, and faulted education bureaucrats for taking instructions from the teachers unions during the COVID-19 pandemic, keeping schools closed for longer than they should have been, and causing "unquantifiable learning loss."

MAJORITY OF VIRGINIA PARENTS WANT A SAY IN THEIR KIDS' EDUCATION, FOX NEWS POLL FINDS

Youngkin also hit McAuliffe for his debate remark that "I don't think parents should be telling schools what they should teach." The Republican said McAuliffe had been "exposed" by this comment, which he "spoke from his heart."

The Democrat recently launched an ad claiming that Youngkin had taken that quote out of context, but the Republican's campaign shot back with an ad showing McAuliffe standing by the statement seven times.

Youngkin laid out his education plan.

The Republican promised to address danger in schools by encouraging them to hire school resource officers – and by threatening to withdraw funding if they refused. He also promised that schools would coordinate with law enforcement and that schools would have to report crimes to law enforcement on his watch. He also pledged a full investigation of the Loudoun County School Board.

Youngkin also laid out some central principles: transparency for parents to know what schools are teaching their children; democracy for parents to have the right to say what schools teach; equality in judging people by their character rather than their skin color; investment in teacher pay; excellence in raising standards; and school choice.

He also pledged to ban critical race theory in schools, and to raise standards for all students. He particularly lamented the low success rates of Black and Hispanic students. He also pledged to form a task force of teachers and parents to "expose those areas where politicians have been failing our children."

After Youngkin addressed the crowd inside the fire station, he took a bullhorn and addressed the hundreds outside. Due to the small capacity of the fire station, hundreds stood in line as the Republican spoke, but he rewarded their patience with a brief speech outside.

Youngkin previously told Fox News that McAuliffe had twisted his words on these issues. "Glenn Youngkin’s far-right social agenda is WRONG for Virginia," McAuliffe posted on Twitter. "From abortion rights to same-sex marriage to book banning. He wants to take us back.
