Virginia voters head to the polls next week to choose the Commonwealth’s next governor. This race has been receiving A LOT of national attention by political pundits as off-cycle races often shed light on the political climate ahead of next year’s U.S. midterm elections.
Parents have also been playing close attention to the race as parent input in their child’s education has become a major focus of the race.
The Virginia Chapter of PSO reached out to both candidates–former Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Republican Glenn Youngkin to see where each candidate stands on protecting and promoting a parent’s right to choose the best education for their child. Below are their responses.
NOTE: PSO cannot and will not tell you who you should vote for. We encourage you to do your own research and decide which candidate best represents your views.
