As Virginia prepares to reevaluate its education standards, the state’s woke Board of Education is considering discontinuing the practice of calling George Washington the “father of our country” because it’s raaaacist.

The board is considering changing the way famed Virginians including Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and George Mason are discussed in class, changes that would follow guidance from hardcore, anti-American leftists.

Per ABC 7:

Every seven years, the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) reviews SOLs. The VDOE discusses and sometimes proposes changes for the Virginia Board of Education to review.

7News was the first to report that two of the proposed changes to Virginia’s history and social science SOLs would have eliminated calling George Washington the “Father of our Country” and James Madison the “Father of the Constitution.”

Virginia’s Republican Gov., Glenn Younkin, opposes the changes.

“I disagree with the removing of the nomenclature of George Washington as the father of our country, because of course he was and, of course, James Madison as the father of our Constitution. So all these standards still need significant work,” Gov. Youngkin said. “And we’re going to reinforce as part of our curriculum, the role of our founding fathers in our country, we’re not going to erode it.”

“I believe that we should tell our history accurately, the good and the bad. And part of the history we’re going to tell is that our Founding Fathers, including George Washington, and James Madison, let’s not forget about Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry and the others played an extraordinary role in the founding of our nation,” the Gov. added.

So, here we are again, America. Leftist “educators” trying to destroy American history and teach our kids to hate America.
