Virginia Republicans — including Governor Glenn Youngkin, Lieutenant Governor Winsome Sears and Attorney General Jason Miyares — rallied for education reform Wednesday afternoon in the heart of Fairfax County. “We’ve made great strides, but we still have a lot of work to do,” Governor Youngkin said on Wednesday.
Lieutenant Governor Winsome Sears stressed the need for greater educational freedom in Virginia. “This is the new Brown v. Board of Education fight,” she told Wednesday’s crowd. “School choice now!”
Attorney General Jason Miyares vowed to defend the rights of all students across the Commonwealth. “No child should ever have their dreams and aspirations denied because of who they are,” Miyares said. “That’s my pledge to you as your attorney general.”
Three congressional candidates — Karina Lipsman (VA-8), Hung Cao (VA-10) and Jim Myles (VA-11) — joined Wednesday’s “back to school” rally. “I’m a parent; you’re a parent — and parents matter,” Myles said. “Together, we can restore safety and academic excellence in our Fairfax County Public Schools — and that’s what I stand for.”
