The newly elected governor of Virginia has instituted a "Inform on Your Teacher" policy.
Stalin would be proud! Back in the day, he had a policy similar to Youngkin's:
"Neighbours. Friends. Even your closest loved ones. In Stalin's Russia, everyone was an informer. And even one word from a resentful child was enough to send you to the firing squad."
Youngkin has created a tip line at firstname.lastname@example.org so that parents can report “divisive” teaching. Do we now pit parents against teachers? Will Virginia have teachers looking over their shoulders if they teach about race? Segregation? Slavery? Lynchings?
Youngkin:'We're asking for folks to send us reports and observations,' Youngkin said. 'Help us be aware of … their child being denied their rights that parents have in Virginia, and we're going to make sure we catalogue it all. … And that gives us further, further ability to make sure we're rooting it out.'
