Youngkin signs executive orders banning CRT, lifts mask mandate in Virginia public schools

TheHill: Virginia’s Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin signed 11 executive orders on his first day in office, including one lifting a mask mandate in public schools and another banning the teaching of critical race theory, both issues Youngkin campaigned on.

“Executive Order Number One delivers on his Day One promise to restore excellence in education by ending the use of divisive concepts, including Critical Race Theory, in public education,” a press release from Youngkin’s office read.

“Executive Order Number Two delivers on his Day One promise to empower Virginia parents in their children’s education and upbringing by allowing parents to make decisions on whether their child wears a mask in school,” the release continued. MORE

  2. A good start, hope he has the tenacity to see it through.

    Contrary to the article’s stated reasons for CRT in K – 12, that poison is taken as fact by children, there is nothing “critical” about their thinking yet (based on several years of being a Boy Scout merit badge counselor for the Citizenship badges).

  3. Taken with a grain of salt.
    Don’t judge a book by its cover.
    Here today, gone tomorrow.
    Hope for the best but expect the worst.
    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
    Only time will tell.

  4. When the leftists in Arlington and Fairfax and Richmond are howling like scalded cats on day one, that’s a pretty good start.
