The phrase “Critical Race Theory” appears on the Virginia Department of Education website, despite repeated claims by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe that the program is not taught in Virginia.

On the Virginia Department of Education website, several examples of the department promoting critical breed theory can be found, including a presentation from 2015, when Terry McAullife was governor, who encourages teachers to “embrace critical race theory” in order to “reorganize attitudes and belief systems”.

The City Journal’s Christopher Rufo detailed the revelations in a Twitter thread on Saturday disputing McAuliffe’s claims that Critical Race Theory is a “racist dog whistle” that “was never taught in Virginia.”
