VA Legislative Black Caucus Sends Letter to the Board of Education Rejecting the Revisionist Standards of Learning Proposed by Gov. Youngkin’s Administration

"These revisionist standards prevent Virginia’s students from learning about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rosa Parks until 6th grade."


From the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus:

“This evening, the members of the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus (VLBC) sent the attached letter to the Virginia Board of Education ahead of their meeting tomorrow morning where they plan to discuss the revised draft Virginia History and Social Science standards of learning released last Friday by the Governor’s Administration.

The members of the VLBC strongly urge the Board of Education to reject these revisionist standards that were written in order to advance a political agenda. We instead urge the Board to move forward with the review process using the original August 17th draft that was thoughtfully and carefully developed by Virginia experts, stakeholders, and educators with public input.”
