Dueling protests were held outside Thursday’s meeting of the Fairfax County School Board, for and against critical race theory (CRT) in the district’s schools. On the pro-CRT side, Michelle Leete — a leader in the NAACP and PTA — excoriated critics of the Marxist-inspired theory.
“Let them die,” Leete said. “Don’t let these uncomfortable people deter us from our bold march forward.”
Harry Jackson, whose son attends Thomas Jefferson High School of Science and Technology (“TJ”), is blasting the magnet school’s new, “anti-Asian” admissions scheme. “TJ is 79 percent Asian,” Jackson notes. “Their new admissions process, with surgical precision, targets the Asian community, reducing their numbers down to 40 percent. This is called racial discrimination, and it is wrong.”
Yesterday, thousands of Cuban people broke into protests to oppose their oppressive dictatorship. For over 60 years, the Cuban people have not had a free election — or a voice.
Amidst Democrat Nominee for Governor Terry McAuliffe’s silence on the issue, it is important to remember not so long ago when then-Governor McAuliffe took an official trip to Cuba.
The Free to Learn Coalition launched with an initial seven-figure national ad campaign of well over $1 million advocating for classrooms independent from political influence.

The statewide election this year in Virginia presents questions which require answers from those seeking to lead.
The Virginia Police Benevolent Association (VAPBA) today announced its endorsement of Glenn Youngkin for governor, citing the Republican nominee’s commitment to prioritizing public safety and supporting law enforcement across the Commonwealth. Youngkin sat down with VAPBA representatives in Richmond last week to discuss pressing issues facing Virginia.
Reagan exhorted his fellow citizens to remember their shared history and ideals: “Believe me, if there’s one impression I carry with me after the privilege of holding for five and one-half years the office held by Adams and Jefferson and Lincoln, it is this: that the things that unite us — America’s past of which we’re so proud, our hopes and aspirations for the future of the world and this much-loved country — these things far outweigh what little divides us.”
Political outsider, successful business leader, and Republican nominee for governor Glenn Youngkin announced today the launch of “Educators for Youngkin,” a coalition of teachers, parents, educators, and community members across Virginia that are committed to restoring excellence in education. Glenn Youngkin and the Educators for Youngkin Coalition will work to fix standards and underperformance in all Virginia schools.
School districts across Virginia have been expending resources, directing staff time, and hiring consultants to address “equity” in curriculum delivery and for professional development of teachers and other employees. Fairfax and Loudoun County, the two largest counties in the Commonwealth, have set the lead in driving the changes in education and embracing critical race theory and “anti-bias” in their respective divisions.
