Youngkin: As Governor, We Will Not Teach Critical Race Theory and Will Stand Against Cancel Culture in Schools
YOUNGKIN: "Well, Ben, what we’re seeing right here right now in Loudoun County is the liberal left waging a cultural war and the victims are our children. And who’s standing up for them? Not the politicians, but in fact parents and teachers. And who’s going to stand up for the parents and teachers right now, where the school board isn’t and politicians aren’t either? And as governor, I will stand for excellence in education. We will not teach critical race theory and I will stand up for teachers and parents against these kinds of cancel culture initiatives. And oh, by the way, who is standing up for Tanner Cross? Well, I will tell you, as governor, I’ll have his back. I’ll stand up for the teachers, I’ll stand up for the parents, and I actually call on that school board right now in Loudoun County to reinstate Tanner Cross fully because they have absolutely ignored his constitutional rights. And oh, by the way, his best interest is the children right now. They should reinstate him right now and as governor I would call for that."
