Elizabeth Schultz Named as Virginia’s Assistant Superintendent of Public Instruction

Today Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin named Jillian Balow as Virginia’s next Superintendent of Public Instruction, and Elizabeth Schultz as the next Assistant Superintendent of Public Instruction.

“Jillian and Elizabeth are going to be crucial in helping Secretary of Education Aimee Guidera restore excellence in education. Under my direction, they will get to work on ensuring our schools remain safely open, ban critical race theory and political agendas from our classrooms, and rebuild our crumbling schools,” Youngkin said.

Schultz has deep roots in Fairfax County. She was twice elected to Fairfax County’s school board, where she was a passionate advocate for academic excellence, parents’ rights, and fiscal stewardship.

The Daily Wire’s Luke Rosiak called Schultz “a crusading education reformer,” in a report filed earlier today. “While on the board, Schultz demanded that her peers focus on increasing math, science, and reading scores, rather than social justice initiatives, while also expressing support for investing in programs that she said could help promote achievement, such as universal pre-K,” Rosiak noted.

Fairfax GOP Chairman Steve Knotts lauded Schultz in a statement issued tonight. “We couldn’t be more thrilled with Governor-elect Youngkin’s decision,” Knotts said. “We extend our heartfelt congratulations and best wishes to Fairfax County’s own Elizabeth Schultz!”
