FALLS CHURCH, Va. — Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin called Tuesday for an investigation of a prestigious high school, after some parents there said they were never notified of academic commendations awarded to their children.

Youngkin asked Attorney General Jason Miyares, a fellow Republican, to launch the probe of Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Fairfax County amid complaints from some parents and activists who say the school chose to withhold the commendations to downplay individual achievement in favor of equity.

I've read about this and it is unconscionable what these school leaders did. Just a disgrace. They should all be fired at the very least.

SMH at the nonsense

Another witch hunt by the absolutely ridiculous Gov. Bumpkin. Just stupid. And worst of all, 'they' are teaching children to also be stupid. Wake up, people, and get this jackass out of office. Oye.
