Youngkin launches tip line for parents to report schools teaching critical race theory

By Kendall Tietz

Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin opened an anonymous tip line Monday, where parents in the state can report schools for teaching Critical Race Theory (CRT) in violation of his executive order.

Youngkin has doubled down on his commitment to rid CRT from the state’s schools. Upon taking office on Jan. 15, Youngkin issued his first executive order that vowed to end “the use of inherently divisive concepts – including Critical Race Theory – in public education.”

CRT holds that America is fundamentally racist, yet it teaches people to view every social interaction and person in terms of race. Its adherents pursue “antiracism” through the end of merit, objective truth and the adoption of race-based policies.

“You can send us an email at helpeducation@governor.virginia.gov,” Youngkin announced on the “John Fredericks Show” Monday. “We’re asking for folks to send us reports and observations that will help us be aware of things like privileged bingo, be aware of their child being denied their rights that parents have in Virginia and we’re going to make sure that we catalogue it all. It gives us great insight into what’s happening at the school level and that gives us further ability to make sure that we’re rooting it out.”

Fairfax County Public Schools was criticized Wednesday over an assignment called “privilege” bingo, which told students they were privileged if they identified with characteristics such as being white, Christian, male, cisgender or a military kid, the Daily Wire originally reported.

Youngkin has criticized those who “obfuscate” the issue by claiming that CRT does not exist in schools and vowed to rid schools of all its tenets.

“Anyone who thinks that the concepts that actually underpin Critical Race Theory are not in our schools has not been in the schools,” he said on Fox News on Jan. 16.

“Yes, we will teach all history, the good and the bad, because we can’t know where we’re going unless we know where we have come from,” he added. “But to actually teach our children that one group is advantaged and another disadvantaged simply because of the color of their skin cuts across everything we know to be true.”

On Jan. 19, Youngkin nominated Angela Sailor to be Virginia’s Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and the Commonwealth Chief Diversity, Opportunity & Inclusion Officer as part of his cabinet. She has been a vocal critic of curriculum that teaches students that “America’s culture and institutions are rigged to help whites succeed, that they are victimizers if they’re white, and doomed to failure if they’re Black” which she called “the textbook definition of racism.”

  1. Vermonters should encourage duplicating Youngkins tools for reporting on CRT here in Vermont. We should teach Constituional Rights and honoring personal achievements devoid of skin color.

  2. CRT is a bunch of Bull s–t… This country was built on HISTORY, RACE ( of all colors) When you are born you are a male or a female, plain and simple.
    I just read about a teacher who was fired for not calling a student a cat as the kid calls himself a CAT !!! He meows in class. This CTR and all this other bull s–t are getting out of hand. We have cuddled these idiots for way too long. I for one believe a parent has all the rights to report that the teachers are pushing this CRT. After all, we pay them to TEACH. We don’t pay them to push their stupid agender on our kids. They are supposed to teach them Math, English, HISTORY Reading, Writing. Especially History.. We learn from our past history. Good or bad we learn.
    I’m also sick of hearing “White privilege” I don’t think anyone is privileged, you get where you are by learning, hard work, not sucking off the state/government tits..
    I think it’s great that Youngkin is doing this. Too bad we don’t have a Governor with balls.

  3. Encouraging snitch culture that divides and conquers: NO.
    Encouraging reporting of vaccine adverse events in children: YES.

    • Allison the cat is way outta the bag now on the snitch culture..
      I get what you mean, but the fact is that we now live in a snitch culture already.. so maybe the solution is for us to snitch on the snitchers and they may see that they don’t like it as much when it’s THEM in the doghouse.
      We’ll see it end really fast then.. of course.
