  1. Liars hiring liars to continue the lies. Sound practice, but a whole lot of fertilizer.

    TO begin with CRT, a GRADUALTE LEVEL study of unfair practices in many of our countries institutions, is NOT begin taught in VA schools. It was the fear of that which helped elect Youngkin. (That and calling for audits of elections… WHCIH ARE ALREADY IN THE LAW IN VA.)

    Ms. Ballow is listed as doing the following: “Worked with tribal partners to enact “Indian Education for All” so that Wyoming students would learn about the history of the Northern Arapahoe and Eastern Shoshone tribes.”

    OK, so why not ensure that Virginia students would learn about the history of the state, including its secession from the Union over slavery. Not to mention the well documented aspects of racist thinking and actions by many institutions throughout the state’s (and out nation’s) history?

    Once again, the fear mongering GOP throws out more fear mongers because they can’t truly win on policy; just fear.

      This question has been a hot topic at Bacon’s Rebellion for a long time:

      I’d say denying that CRT exists in Virginia schools is pretty much an impossibility at this point.

      1. Bacons Rebellion is an OPINION site that pushes its own beleifs and tends to oust or attack anyone who disagrees. Not an open forum, but an echo chamber.

        But it is YOUR echo chamber, so have at it.

  2. By the way Mr. Roberts, did you have permission to quote the BR headline without annotation?
    Just wondering as you have asked me similar questions when I have shared links for elsewhere.

    1. I don’t need permission to reproduce the headline. It is not protected by copyright. What “annotation” do you think I should have used?

  3. It will be interesting to see what they consider big changes, since banning a thing that doesn’t exist can’t make too much of a wave.

    Hopefully the woman from Montana is able to do similarly good things for marginalized communities [is that terminology banned now?] here too.
