As released in statements issued this past Sunday, Lieutenant Governor Winsome Sears (R-VA) exclaimed that education for the United States is a “national security crisis.”
As part of an appearance on “Sunday Morning Futures,” from Fox News, Sears explained to Maria Bartiromo, the host of the show, that rapidly declining levels in the country’s education standards and the rapid rise of critical race theory has made the U.S. education system lag extremely far behind its global adversaries. Sears also spoke out to say that she thinks that public education all over the United States of America has managed to crash to an even deeper bottom and become has cemented itself as a national security crisis.
Bartiromo kicked off the riveting interview by making sure to point out the idea that Governor Glenn Youngkin (R-VA), who seems to go along with Sears, has chosen to prioritize the currently raging battle against CRT forcing its way into schools.
“I know education to you changes everything as well,” stated Bartiromo. “This has been a major focus for you, and yet here too, bad policy in terms of CRT and focusing on issues away from strengthening our students to make them best compete with the Chinese, with all adversaries across the world as they get older.”
“I’m glad you stated it that way when you talk about the Chinese, the Russians, etc., because that’s what I’ve elevated our children not learning to,” shot back Sears. “This is a national security crisis. When so many of our children are not learning, we’re in trouble. We need STEM education. Heavens, we need children who can just read and write. How about that? And add one plus one. We don’t have that.”
“We are losing to the China’s [of the world], to the Russia’s, even Estonia is beating us in math,” she went on. “In science and technology, we’re losing. We need to have education up here now.”
Sears called for voters all over the United States of America to cast their vote in favor of change and to make sure that their voices are being well heard in the upcoming November 2022 midterm elections
“We’re talking about the future of America. When we talk about the future of America, we’re talking about our children and grandchildren. Elections, they’re about them. It’s about hope and the future, and we’re not getting there, and we’re not getting there very fast.”
