Terry McAuliffe is the (D) candidate for Governor of Virginia. He's been a major player in Dem politics for years and he's fully bathed in the Left's waters.
So when he makes pronouncements about schools, pay attention.
Democratic Virginia Gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe said parents should not have authority over what schools teach their children during a debate Tuesday evening....
He gets more specific:
... “I’m not gonna let parents come into schools and actually take books out and make their own decisions,” McAuliffe replied. “I stopped the bill that I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.”...
Not long ago, it was simply a given that schools, whether public, parochial, or private, operated "in loco parentis"--in the place of the parents. That understanding was dominant until the 1960's, and the crack between 'parents' and 'schools' has grown to a chasm ever since.
Look for example, at the fight schools put up over merely making available their curricula, materials, and books which are used in class. (In the instance here, you can bet your last dollar that Evers the Educrat will veto this bill.)
Control of what goes into your children's heads is the Holy Grail for the Party. Don't ever forget it.
