Virginia Teachers' Union Pushes Schools To Defy Youngkin's Ban on Woke Education

A Virginia teachers' union is pushing educators to defy a state ban on teaching critical race theory principles to children as young as five years old, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The Virginia Education Association last month published a "Black Lives Matter at School Toolkit," intended for elementary to high school students, for a "week of action," a plan that flies in the face of an executive order from Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R.) that prohibits critical race theory instruction, according to the Journal.

A spokesman for the governor told Fox News the program is "a political manual for the next generation of Virginia's students."

If a district superintendent does not support adding Black Lives Matter lessons to the curriculum, the Virginia Education Association recommends that educators "share the BLM toolkit with their school administrators, fellow educators, and school counselors."
