The new Republican leadership in Virginia — Gov. Glenn Youngkin, Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears, and Attorney General Jason Miyares — went scorched earth upon entering office, which officially happened Saturday.
Youngkin signed a host of executive orders fulfilling key campaign promises, while Miyares fired more than two dozen staff members in the AG's office the day before taking office.
The new governor signed nine executive orders and two executive directives to address public education, COVID restrictions, the climate, and the economy.
The first order Youngkin signed "delivers on his Day One promise to restore excellence in education by ending the use of divisive concepts, including Critical Race Theory, in public education."
"Political indoctrination has no place in our classrooms," the order reads, in part. "Our children deserve far better from their education than to be told what to think. Instead, the foundation of our educational system should be built on teaching our students how to think for themselves. Virginia must renew its commitment to teaching our children the value of freedom of thought and diversity of ideas."
