Why Virginia governor's tip line is sparking new critical race theory concerns in schools Ryan W. MillerUSA TODAY
The Virginia government's tip line – which encourages parents to report unease over "divisive" teaching and COVID-19 restrictions – has engaged conservatives and riled up liberals. But it's unclear what the governor can legally do with the responses he receives.
Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin created the email address in the wake of his first two executive orders in office: One allows parents to opt out of school mask mandates for their children, and the other takes action against what Youngkin called "inherently divisive concepts" in the classroom. Experts are concerned the tip line to report violations could have a chilling effect on what kids learn in schools.
