DEI harms people and needs to be stopped as counterproductive


Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin (R) slammed Fairfax County Public Schools for spending $450,000 on an equity coach and withholding national merit recognitions from students, WJLA-TV reported Sunday.

What's the background?

Last month, Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, the highest-ranked high school in the nation, was accused of intentionally withholding notification of students' academic awards in the name of "equity."

Since then, a total of seven high schools in Fairfax County have admitted to failing to provide students with notification of the awards in time for college scholarship and admissions deadlines, WJLA reported.

The seven schools account for 25% of the high schools in the county.
