The lack of respect Terry McAuliffe has had for parents across Virginia (especially northern Virginia) in the past year-and-a-half is revealing. Parents had their children’s schools closed without recourse last year. Now, with schools thankfully open, the online option has been removed for many of the parents who need it.

Parents and students who have spent years working with the hope of getting into rigorous academic programs like Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology are now being told their dreams are being taken away from them to promote “equity.” And those students not in magnet programs now have their advanced math courses taken away based on recommendations from the Virginia Department of Education.

Glenn Youngkin and a fresh Virginia House of Delegates would give education options back to parents and put Virginia on track to regain the academic excellence that has been eroding for years.
