(Jacob Bruns, HeadlineUSA) Glenn Youngkin, Virginia’s Republican governor, declared that Virginian parents have the right to raise their own children as they see fit, he wrote in a Washington Post op-ed.

Youngkin began his editorial by asserting that Virginians reject the state-sponsored Critical Race Theory that their children have been fed.

“In November’s election, Virginians came together to declare that too many local leaders were failing a generation of schoolchildren,” he wrote.

He also emphasized the failures of the public education system, which has failed both teachers and students, as well as parents.

“Students deprived of a quality education, teachers who are underpaid and overw​​orked, and parents deserving a voice in their children’s schooling fueled a movement to end the government’s one-size-fits-all approach,” he wrote.

On the first day of his term as governor, Youngkin signed an executive order that empowered parents to make decisions regarding their children’s education.

His order importantly ensured that parents can opt out their kids from a school’s mask mandate.

But according to Youngkin, the solution is not to pour trillions of dollars more into the public education font. Rather, he believes that parents should have a greater say in the education of their children.

Virginia’s parents have had enough with the government dictating how they should raise their children,” he suggested.

He also emphasized that he would continue to support parental rights in education in order to combat the woke-University led push to indoctrinate young children.

“On the campaign trail, I listened to parents and, as governor, I will continue to listen. School boards throughout the Commonwealth should do the same,” he wrote.

“To parents, I say: We respect you. And we will continue to work to empower you in the education and well-being of your children,” he concluded.
