A  Resounding Defeat for democrats
Winsome Sears elected Lt Gov Va, “What you are looking at is the American Dream!”

Glen Youngkin has now won Virginia’s gubernatorial contest becoming the first Republican to win a statewide election in the Old Dominion since 2009. The Associated Press called the race at 12:37 a.m. ET. There could also be a clean sweep in Virginia by Republicans as the state could now have a Republican Lt Governor and Attorney General and a Republican plurality in the lower House.. This was the race that the democrats were intent on winning. They pulled out all the stops bringing in former president Obama, Stacey Abrams, Kamala Harris and even Joe Biden. It was a major upset and as of 12:51 AM EST there may be an even bigger upset in New Jersey.

This race turned the day that Terry McAuliffe said “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.At that time early votes had been cast, so this defeat could have even been bigger. Much can be learned from this election. While McAuliffe used the democrat playbook and tried to make it about Trump, Youngkin wisely made it about the issue of education playing out in Virginia. He was rewarded with 57% of the vote of white women. Suburban moms help decide this one and Youngkin has written the new playbook for Republicans. He was also careful with Trump - while he said he was “honored” to receive Trump’s endorsement after winning the convention, he chose not to appear with Trump on the campaign trail.


It was Plato who said "the two most important things are who gets to teach the children and what do they teach them.


The people of Virginia have won the first victory over the radical left.

Every win by a Republican is a step towards the end of our democracy and the destruction of the American way of life.

BTW, pretty nice voter turnout in Virginia. Seems like maybe Democrats don't win when voters turn out.

Do you know anything about the Boston Mayoral election?  Both candidates were democrats. The only point I was making is that it was the first time Boston had a female non-white Mayor.

For those interested:

Michelle Wu   defeated   Annissa Essaibi George   in the nonpartisan mayoral election in   Boston, Massachusetts , on November 2, 2021. Both candidates were at-large city councilors, and both received   endorsements   from Democratic officials and groups that tend to back Democrats.

Media outlets described Wu as the more progressive candidate and Essaibi George as the more moderate one. [4] [5] [6] [7]   Essaibi George said that she did "not neatly fit in a box." [8]

That is not proof. A little girl came home and told a story. When I taught that happened nearly daily. Children make up stories, and they often pick up on what is going on in the house and repeat it. Show me CRT in the curriculum and I'll believe it. I've looked and I don't see it there.

That is the 1st grade curriculum.

There is evidence of rape. School boards don't hide things. Superintendents and principles do.

The little girl's words do not match up with what is being taught in the school. And if it did, where are the other children who were in the class, coming forward? 

You do realize that is how it goes when something questionable happens in class. Parents talk and come forward. Principles investigate a child's claim. This is normal protocol in school. 

Sorry, more likely, her parents talked about CRT at home and how they felt about it and the kid processed it that way.

btw... it was innocent little girls who got a whole pile of women killed as witches in Salem... and they lied.

School boards don't hide things. Superintendents and principles do.

"Loudoun County Public Schools in Northern Virginia is being accused of covering up allegations that a boy in late May sexually assaulted a ninth grade girl in her school’s restroom—the nightmare scenario so often described by opponents of radical transgender school policies. 

The school system   allegedly covered up   the incident by transferring the male student to a neighboring school where police said he was arrested after sexually assaulting another student."



We are not alking about school board members from the 1950's. We are talking about ideologues who were pushing transgender policies.


The little girl's words do not match up with what is being taught in the school

Where is your proof of what was being taught there?


And if it did, where are the other children who were in the class, coming forward? 

Six year olds are going to come forward?  For them anything they are being taught is the right thing.


You do realize that is how it goes when something questionable happens in class. Parents talk and come forward. Principles investigate a child's claim. This is normal protocol in school. 

There is nothing normal in public schools today, including the fact that they are failing to educate.


Sorry, more likely, her parents talked about CRT at home and how they felt about it and the kid processed it that way.

Sorry, Perrie that is simply an opinion. I can't share that opinion because education has become so politicized. That school board? They have been incredibly dishonest.

I am aware of what the school district is being accused of covering up. By law, transgender people are supposed to have equal rights. That has nothing to do with ideology. If a straight boy had been accused of rape, there probably would have been a cover up to, if that is how things go there. You are conflating two things together... 

Where is your proof of what was being taught there?

Vic, I provided the actual curriculum here: 7.1.19    That is my proof.

Wrong. My daughters told me what they were being taught in school. I only had an issue once, and I brought it to the school's attention.

There is nothing normal in public schools today, including the fact that they are failing to educate.

That is your opinion. You are making a sweeping generalization of all schools. My kids' school got them into John's Hopkins (a little bit of their brains helped). 

Sorry, Perrie that is simply an opinion.

I'm not conflating any thing, Perrie. The school board wanted a trangender policy and disregarded what parents wanted. Furthermore:

"In 2020, the Democrat-controlled Virginia General Assembly voted for — and Democrat Governor Ralph Northam signed — a law that made it easier to sexually exploit and abuse children in public schools by removing the requirement to report instances of sexual battery, stalking, violation of a protective order, and violent threats occurring on school property."




Vic, I provided the actual curriculum here:  7.1.19     That is my proof.

Is that supposed to be Virginia? That's broad enough to utilize CRT. Take this:

➤Critical Thinker: Make connections
between past and present by
explaining where their grandparents
are from and how their ancestors'
culture impacts their lives.

I could do a lot of improvising with that.




Wrong. My daughters told me what they were being taught in school. I only had an issue once, and I brought it to the school's attention.

Then why don't you believe this woman's daughter?


That is your opinion. You are making a sweeping generalization of all schools. 

American public schools are failing:




My kids' school got them into John's Hopkins (a little bit of their brains helped). 

My kids did ok too. That doesn't mean anything regarding the overall state of the public school system


Yes it is which is why I said, " more likely,". 

Which is why my guess is that the educated professionals are lying and cheating again!


Repeating an opinion doesn't make it more true. 

That is not an opinion. Last night Virginia became a red state and Glenn Yougkin is it's Governor. He will keep his pledge. I'm sure the fireworks in the VA public school system are about to go off.

Vic,

You would have to find me the law that they are talking about since anything that comes off of that news site, is highly politicized and hardly unbiased as this quote shows:

For example, California has long been a “leader” when it comes to the making it easier to sexually exploit and abuse children. From laws mandating unlimited access to abortion services to laws advancing the LGBT agenda , the Golden State never fails to run out of finding new ways to feed its deviant desires.

As to the circulium, you quoted this part:

➤Critical Thinker: Make connections
between past and present by
explaining where their grandparents
are from and how their ancestors'
culture impacts their lives.

In early childhood education, those are nothing more than guideline questions that are age-appropriate. Furthermore, you seemed to have missed the entire context:

● What is my history? Where are
my grandparents from? My
parents? Where was I born?
● How is my life different from
that of my grandparents?
● How has my history made a
difference in how I speak, look
or celebrate special events?

Skills Focus and the Five
Cs:
➤Contributor/Collaborator:
Demonstrate good citizenship by:
a) focusing on fair play, exhibiting
good sportsmanship, helping
others, and treating others with
respect;
b) recognizing the purpose of rules
and practicing self-control;
c) working hard in school;
d) taking responsibility for one’s own
actions;
e) valuing honesty and truthfulness
in oneself and others; and

f) participating in classroom
decision making through voting;
g) getting along with all people even
if they are different from me.

These have been basic building blocks for 1st grade for as long as I have taught. It is teaching them to be good citizens in the class to prepare to be good citizens later on in life. Nowhere does it say, that a child is a bad person because they were born white. It doesn't even hint at race.

The Federalist is a big proponent of school vouchers, so of course, they are going to say that public schools are failing. Do you know where they fail the most? Poor schools and that is across the board, no matter the race.  

NOW there won't be any CRT taught in Virginia schools! Repeating an opinion doesn't make it more true. 

Please quote me in context. My point is that there is no CRT currently being taught in the state of Virginia. So of course it follows suit that Glenn Yougkin , will continue down that path. And I am sure nothing will happen since there was nothing to happen, other than politicize a make-believe boogieman.

Red state or blue state makes no difference to me. What does is real issues and this issue was manufactured.

And enough Democrats keep insulting voters, telling them that they are too stupid to know what to vote for.

Seems like a winning strategy to me, I can't even imagine how they managed to pull defeat from the jaws of victory with election strategies like THAT!

Red state or blue state makes no difference to me. What does is real issues and this issue was manufactured.

Perrie, are you interested in a Royal Blue states application of CRT in the classroom? No CRT is NOT directly being taught in Washington classrooms but the THEORY IS being used to frame lesson plans and has been recorded by parents overwatching their kids distance learning during the mandated medical lockdowns....

To take the single ideal of CRT isn't being taught in K-12 cause it doesn't appear in the course planning is exactly the position the progressive state school superintendent is taking and when confronted by the actual recorded evidence deflects or plain refuses to respond....

CRT in public schools isn't a course, is a formulated framework of lesson planning on teaching methods to teach the underlying racist ideals...

I can provide a lot of evidence of it here in Washington State and the State DOE lying about it....

It is so prevelent here in WA that it is undeniable... This doesn't mean it is happening in Virginia in the same way, but one has to consider the facts..

YES, CRT is being taught directly on the college level, NO it is NOT being taught directly in Public schools... Indirectly the truth is yes it is being taught in a much MUCH more insidious way....

A plainly racist way that reminds one of the racial theories that were taught to german youth starting in the early 30's using the same techniques created by the bolsheviks in Russia in the '20's

I will gladly provide linkage on request..... We have several investigative reporters following it's implementation and one doing a series on it here in WA...

They have the State Superintendent of Public Instruction running and hiding over it...

CRT as a theory has been around for a very long time and yes it is taught as an idea in colleges for over 40 years now, but it is not part of the public school system. If you have proof then provide it. 

I know it's not part of the NYS or NYC public school system. If there was hard truth to it in Washington and it is not part of the curriculum there, then the State Superintendent of Public Instruction has very big problems. I have not heard of any yet.

One last note, unlike the 20's or the 30's these kids go to school with their phones that can record without a teacher even knowing it. If there was CRT being taught in the classroom, don't you think there would be some audio of it as proof? As of yet, I have not heard any.

Ok, Here is one that is pursuing the story..

Jason Rantz ... (that is his name it is not a pun)

You can easily find more, all you have to do is search CRT teaching in Washington Schools.... The evidence is plain, it's not directly in the teaching plans as courses of study, it's the philosophy being used to create the teaching plans and the approach to the actual teaching.... Using a racial basis as the approach to teaching....

Insidious is the nicest term one can use for it...

I watched the videos and listened to what they said, and first of all, there is no context to them. I don't know who they are talking to. It could be just about anyone. And since we know that CRT is out there, we really don't know who or for whom these videos are made to instruct.

I have done extensive research into this topic since it has come out, and I have yet to hear it in the class with children responding to it. Furthermore, I have yet to see a video where there is instruction to the facility with them responding to it.  This is the usual way that new curriculum is introduced to teachers.

Your right, they do, and several have done just that and presented it to their parents who have raised the alarms over it... We have had several incidents where school boards in several locations have had parents removed from board meetings claiming they are disturbing the peace, some in handcuffs....

We get the reports when they happen, then they disappear off the media radar...  There is an active policy to keep it out of the public eye.... much like the one that teaches direct sex education starting in Kindergarten which which was denied by the OSPI and the governor but has also been reported and curricula provided by parents....

Washington state and it's progressive leadership is at the forefront of parents not having any right to decide what their children are taught...

And it is not settling well with the majority of parents....

Really Perrie? Those training video came from a teacher in the district and the recorder clearly connects it with the training the Highline school district teachers are being forced to undergo in how to couch their lessons to advance the theory.... And the reporter following/reporting it clearly states the source....

Thanks for at least not denying it IS being done, but it's hard to accept that you fail to admit the plain purpose. There's a lot more if you care to look for it....

They aren't teaching CRT directly to students, they are using it to guide their lesson planning, and forcing the teachers to learn it so they can teach it's precepts......

Teachers have been fired for refusing... (I got that one from my Sister in Law a former science and social studies teacher and school principle)

You know I have sat through our local school board hearings on mask-wearing and I have seen unruly parents allowing yelling and screaming and threatening our school board members and nothing was done to them. Frankly, I thought for the "I know where you live" threats alone, they should have been arrested. 

It was broadcasted. It was an embarrassment.

My husband couldn't take it anymore and got up and walked out when a parent let his middle school and elementary school kids open up a big fresh mouth to the adults on the board and got cheers from the parents who agreed. These same parents actually booed the opposing parents. The reverse didn't happen. 

I'm sorry, but it's really hard to purge the internet these days and I think so where there would be coverage of arrests.

This is only a very small part of everything happening out here... People are leaving the state as quickly as they can afford to, you have to show your papers to enter businesses in Seattle, the Department of Labor and Industries is enforcing mandates on the employers, in fact they are enforcing a lot of political policies that has nothing to do with OSHA or worker comp... the state AG has also been selectively enforcing laws to advance political aims, the governor has authorized emergency powers which he will not tell anyone when he is going to give up....

It's become a very mild form of autocratic socialism here, nobody goes to jail, they have stopped enforcing the law if it goes against their political policies... Open hard drug use is defacto legal, thats why a republican DA was elected in Seattle to try and change it...

If I could afford to, I would have left the state a year ago... The murder tally is two and a half times higher than it was this time last year, I've taken to carrying my weapon again cause you never know when someone is going to attack and we live out in the sticks... Our property taxes have doubled over the last year but that's not all, the assessors have also doubled property valuations as well... There is an active effort underway to sidestep the state constitution and establish an income tax...

The list is longer than this I'm just reporting the high spots, (or low spots really) 

The governor has openly said the pandemic is the perfect opportunity to advance the progressive agenda...

Things are getting real ugly out here, I suspect they think that they have complete control that there will not be a backlash...

But I'm here to tell ya, the backlash is coming, I see it everyday.... Even my liberal neighbors are complaining...

They are bragging on how they have 96% compliance in government with the vax mandate, but what the aren't bragging about is they got from 74% to 96% overnight, by firing the employees that refused to prove compliance... (only keeping the ones they couldn't replace) that includes the state patrol, schools and fire departments, parks and recreation anything that is government or does business with the government.... Doctors that don't repeat the party spiel on the vaccines are disciplined by the state medical boards all the way up to loosing their licenses to practice.

It's becoming a real communist utopia out here, conform or be destroyed by the government...

It's actually happening girl......

CRT doesn’t need to be mentioned in curriculum for it to be taught.    Teachers can incorporate it in lessons in nearly limitless ways if the school lets it happen.    Most parent only noticed it due to forced in home learning.

The days of the family sitting around the dinner table to discuss the days events are gone unfortunately.    In home learned forced that to happen some more the last year or so.

A Youngkin Coalition

College-educated white men, people from small towns and rural areas and older voters made up key parts of Mr. Youngkin’s winning coalition. Notably, Mr. Youngkin had a slight edge with college-educated white voters, a group that favored Mr. Biden by 11 percentage points in last year’s VoteCast survey. Overall, Mr. Youngkin won among white voters in the state by a much higher spread than Mr. Trump’s six-point margin with that group last year. The survey also suggests that Latino voters favored Mr. Youngkin over Mr. McAuliffe, though the sample size of the group was much smaller than for white and Black voters.
