Terry McAuliffe the former Governor of Virginia and current Democrat candidate for Governor raised eyebrows during a debate on Tuesday night in which he claimed that parents should not have any say in what their children are taught in the classroom.
As The Daily Wire reports:
Virginia’s Democrat and Republican gubernatorial candidates participated in their final debate Tuesday night, with Democrat and former Gov. Terry McAuliffe declaring that parents shouldn’t have a say in what their kids are taught in public schools.
At one point during the debate, the candidates were asked out whether protections for transgender students should be determined at the state or local level. McAuliffe referenced a recent incident where a parent complained that two books available to high school students contained graphic sexual content and pedophilia. The school district removed the books and is currently reviewing them.
“I’m not gonna let parents come in to schools and actually take books off and make their own decisions,” McAuliffe said to audience applause (the debate took place in ultra-Liberal Northern Virginia). “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.”
“I get really tired of everybody running down teachers. I love our teachers and what they’ve done through covid, these are real heroes who deserve our respect,” he added.
Will the voters of Virginia bow to McAuliffe’s insistence that Democrats and school administrators know what’s best for America’s children? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
