We need to get to the bottom of what appears to be an egregious, deliberate attempt to disadvantage high-performing students at one of the best schools in the country, parents and students deserve answers and Attorney General Miyares will initiate a fullinvestigation. I believe this failure may have caused material harm to those students and their parents, and that this failure may have violated the Virginia Human Rights Act.
[The schools] have a maniacal focus on equal outcomes for all students at all costs. And at the heart of the American dream, is excelling, is advancing, is stretching and recognizing that we have students that have different capabilities, some students have the ability to perform at one level, others need more help, and we have to allow students to run as fast as they can to dream the biggest dreams they can possibly dream and then go get them.
The fact that businesses are still dealing with COVID-19 related penalties and fines is infuriating, livelihoods are on the line. In the previous administration, we saw our government shut down businesses, close our schools, and separate us from each other.

They think that parents have no right to know what Glenn Youngkin child is discussing with their teacher, or their counselor, particularly when some of the most important topics, most important topics that a child may want to discuss, are being determined. What's their name ? What pronoun will they use ? How are they going to express their gender ?
Last year, we saw radical politicians say that parents had no right to determine what was being taught in their children's classroom. Well, all of you, and many, many, many others across the Commonwealth of Virginia stood up and said, ‘ Enough. ’ You stood together, you stood together because we all recognized the core truth in our children's education, parents matter. That's what we concluded. ONE OF THE NATION ’S MOST VULNERABLE DEMOCRATS COZIES UP TO BIDEN FOR PENNSYLVANIA RALLY Youngkin recounted some of his legislative achievements, such as Senate Bill 656, which stated that if school materials are sexually explicit and parents do n’t agree with them, they can request an alternative set of materials. He cautioned though that, despite some progress, the fight against school boards and teachers unions was not over.

This is shocking, the Democrats are continuing to cover up a scandal of their own creation. The Democrat controlled parole board broke the law, put criminals ahead of victims, and tried to cover it all up. We will reform the parole board, expose those conspiring to hide this from public view, and stand up for victims rights.
I just hope Arlington County Public schools and the rest of the school systems around the commonwealth of Virginia use this week to listen to parents, and get prepared, because we granted parents the option to decide whether they want their child to wear a mask or not, and we're going to protect that right.
My fellow Virginians, we stand here this morning at this defining moment, a defining moment that, yes, started with two people on a walk. And a defining moment that is now millions of Virginians walking together. Walking together, sharing dreams and hopes just like the ones that have always been planted on my own heart.

I would not sign the Texas bill today, as I've said through this entire campaign, I'm pro-life. I believe in exceptions in the case of rape and incest and when the life of the mother is in jeopardy. But the Texas bill also is unworkable and confusing. … What I have said is that I do believe that a pain threshold bill legislation would be appropriate.
Friends, The McAuliffe campaign is not The McAuliffe campaign, it is a movement, and we are sweeping across the commonwealth of Virginia, but what that's going to say to the nation is get ready, because when we win on November 2nd, we are going to set the tone to come back and take back our House of Representatives next year on November 2022 and send Nancy back to California, that's what we're going to go do.
It’s pathetic to see Terry McAuliffe recycle the same old empty promises, failed policies, and dishonest attacks that he’s been repeating for 12 years, now, McAuliffe wants to suppress and silence parents so his special interest allies can force their radical political agenda into classrooms and tell children what to think instead of teaching them how to think.
