Is Youngkin Governing With McAuliffe’s Policies? Now Teacher Evaluations Are Surely Going to Lead to More Shortages. This is Disgraceful

In November 2021, Glenn Youngkin won the gubernatorial race, beating Terry McAuliffe. Many attribute Glenn Youngkin’s victory over what has become known as the “McAuliffe Moment”. During a debate, Terry McAuliffe said that teachers know what’s better for students and parents do not need to be involved. This propelled Youngin to victory, however, that damning statement seems to be the current policy under Youngkin.

In Loudoun County anyways, ALL teachers were required to take Policy 8040 (Trans Policy) “training”. This training consisted of encouraging teachers to keep secrets from parents. Now, teachers are being evaluated on “Culturally Responsive Teaching & Equitable Practices” which is focused on race, gender and equity. I understand that Youngkin appointed (5) new members to the VDOE just a few months ago, but how about an EO, some bold decisions, anything to slow or stop the roll of this garbage? Youngkin also recently announced a new effort to recruit teachers, great BUT once they catch wind of how they will be evaluated you’ll be back to where you started (see evaluation criteria below).

If I wanted McAuliffe policies I would have voted for McAuliffe. How about this Governor Youngkin, quit campaigning for political candidates in other states and focus on Virginia? Perhaps get a year under your belt before considering a run for president? Maybe make an appearance at ground zero, Loudoun County School Admin building, remember We The Parents? You may have done some good things since taking office but our kids education and We The Parents is what put you over the top and was the pinnacle of your campaign. If my wife didn’t care about the kids so much I’d ask her to quit. This is all happening on your watch governor.
