Virginia's new Republican governor, who banned critical race theory in schools, is launching a tip line for parents to report their kids' teachers

Virginia's newly elected Republican governor, who has banned critical race theory in public schools, is launching a tip line to report teachers of "divisive subjects."

In a Monday interview with the conservative radio host John Fredericks, Gov. Glenn Youngkin said parents could email the state government to report any public-school teachers they believed to be "behaving objectionably."

Youngkin said: "We're asking for folks to send us reports and observations that they have that will help us be aware of things like privilege bingo, be aware of their child being denied their rights that parents have in Virginia. And we're going to make sure we catalog it all.

"This gives us a great insight into what's happening at a school level, and that gives us further ability to make sure we're rooting it out."

2. Be VERY vigilant in February

I heard a guy on the local Richmond talk radio station this morning. Heís an African American they made that very clear. He has some anti CRT organization that he was promoting. Part of it was that parents should (actually) pay attention to their kids homework especially in February since itís Black History month and all.

Sounds like he is using some forbidden words, and the brown shirts need to know, apparently.

so if a teacher teaches anything they don't like, they'll call the tip line.

50. Tell that to the Canadians

What? Oh yeah, they live in "America" too, but not the United States.

Canada converted to the metric system back in the 1970s. Yep, it's been almost 50 years. So what the hell is wrong with us? We can't keep up with the rest of the world. We make them have a separate, dual standard just for us.

Pretty much the REST of the WORLD converted to metric system 50 years ago.

52. The US uses it for science, medicine, illegal drugs, soda, liquor, electricity, firearms,

A lot of Americans don't know why TSA liquid limit is 3.4 ounces. It's 100 grams to make it easy for international flights.

"Klicks" is slang for kilometers. Our military does a lot of things in metric to deal with our NATO allies. Although we force our allies to use feet for aviation heights.

It would be simpler if we just used metric.

10. They don't care

They probably know that but it's not about truth it's about bringing out the racist underbelly of our society. I've taught CRT...to graduate students. The whole kerfuffle was ridiculous at first and now it is frightening to realize that they are using this graduate level theory (which is quite simple and fascinating) as a racist dog whistle. Disgusting.

42. "Critical Race Theory and its progeny ... and related concepts ... divisive or inherently racist

concepts".
https://www.governor.virginia.gov/media/governorvirginiagov/governor-of-virginia/pdf/74---eo/74---eo/EO-1---ENDING-THE-USE-OF-INHERENTLY-DIVISIVE-CONCEPTS,-INCLUDING-CRITICAL-RACE-THEORY,-AND-RESTORING-EXCELLEN.pdf

Executive Order Number One (2022) ENDING THE USE OF INHERENTLY DIVISIVE CONCEPTS, INCLUDING
CRITICAL RACE THEORY, AND RESTORING EXCELLENCE IN K-12 PUBLIC EDUCATION IN THE COMMONWEALTH

... Inherently divisive concepts, like Critical Race Theory and its progeny, instruct students to only view life through the lens of race and presumes that some students are consciously or unconsciously racist, sexist, or oppressive, and that other students are victims

... Critical race theory and related concepts

...The Superintendent of Public Instruction shall immediately review all guidelines, websites, best practices, and other materials produced by the Department of Education to identify those that promote or endorse divisive or inherently racist concepts. Such shall be removed.


All of these kinds of executive orders and legislation and bills are broader than Critical Race Theory. (The Nation magazine had a recent column on this).

3. Is this the final stake in the heart of public education?

Make the environment so stupid & hostile for teachers no one will teach in VA anymore? Then do it nationwide.

5. If folks think there's already a shortage of qualified teachers..... just wait.

Teachers have enough bullshit to put up with already, an idiot governor who's going to be harassing them over how they conduct their classes will drive many out of the profession or at least out of the state.

I can't believe some of the shit my daughter tells me, the most recent is a mom who is extremely upset because she won't round an average of 89.2 up to 90 - and this is just second grade!!!!!! She's only been teaching 3 years and is already considering finding a new profession.

Another brick placed into the fascist wall. The wall the GQP wants to build, and have Mexico and Canada pay for, has a much different purpose than MAGAís think. Itís to keep others out, but also us in when America Nazi is in full bloom. This is happening, on a high speed rail and we wanna reach across the aisle to our FRIENDS on the other side. Fuck Putin and his power grab, we are invaded now and at war. How many Govs like DeSatan, Abbott, and this fool will it take. Just think how many more are being groomed to SEIZE Power as Matt Gaetz so eloquently put the state of or future election. Will Saint Ronnie come back and Dems the wall taken down? There is already a wall built around election freedom. FFS, America and MSM. Itís in our face.
