Va. gubernatorial candidate says parents should not control what schools teach their kids

In an apparent rebuke of ongoing parental concerns in Loudoun County, Va., Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe said Tuesday he does not think parents should tell schools what to teach their children.

McAuliffe, who is seeking a second term as governor, and Republican Glenn Youngkin, who is a former businessman and a political newcomer, faced off in their final debate before the November election. The two candidates gave each other no mercy when they sparred about the power parents should have over their child’s education.
