Virginia isn't eliminating accelerated math courses. But it’s one of many states rethinking math education. - Virginia Mercury

Accelerated Math courses aren't going anywhere, but we are reimagining how we can teach students and promote STEM education.

A minor political furor erupted in Virginia last week — over math. It started with a Fox News story declaring that the state Department of Education was moving to eliminate all accelerated math classes before 11th grade, “effectively keeping higher-achieving students from advancing as they usual...

The long, ugly history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

When dismantling racism in our society, it's vital that we continue educating one another and unlearning biases and rhetoric that is harmful to marginalized communities. I stand with the AAPI (Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders) Community.

It's unacceptable that the #AAPI community has been burdened w/ the fear of racist aggression. If you have endured or witnessed a hate crime, please reach out to the VA AG's office: 1-855-664-8821
https://www.washingtonpost.com/history/2021/03/18/history-anti-asian-violence-racism/

Anti-Asian hate crimes have spiked 150 percent since the pandemic began, according to a recent study. But racism and violence against Asians has always come in waves throughout U.S. history.

Virginia set to abolish the death penalty — The Washington Post

This is a historic day where we can finally rid capital punishment from the state code. The long and inhumane history of this punishment will echo in Virginia for years to come, but we have accomplished moral justice in Virginia by abolishing the death penalty. I am proud to have voted for his measure in the house.

Please explain the purpose of HB-1980. You are making colleges spend money with no real purpose, when there is so much discussion on the cost of higher education. You cannot fix history. Money is not the answer. Instead of asking the colleges to figure out what to do, come up with your own ideas. I am ashamed to say you are a retired "reserve" officer. I am a retired Naval Officer also. But not reserve.
I hope you all aren't really going to go down this path, shipmate:
Hello, where can I find information on testing in NOVA? All testing, free, with or without insurance, by appointment only, no Doctors order needed, antibody testing. I’m seeing so many posts in local groups asking about testing. The answers are pretty vague such as “I think you can get it in DC or Arlington”, “I think you have to pay for it and pay a separate lab”, “you can only be tested with a doctors order”. It seems this information should be more accessible. Thanks
Del. Reid - can you please ask VDOT to mill and repave Shellhorn Rd by Home Depot in Ashburn? It’s an absolute pothole-ridden and cracked mess. Thank you.

So just curious you had thousands of law abiding gun owners outside the Capital today in Richmond most of them with the scary AR-15 and yet nothing happened except a peaceful protest of Anti 2A gun laws. So the real question now is who’s side are you on?
What are you going to do about the assault weapons ? Are you for impeaching our President ? Hmmmmmmmm!
I am beyond incensed that Minority Leader Eileen Filler-Corn is denying the very credible women accusing LG Justin Fairfax of sexual assault the opportunity to confront him in a hearing. This is inconceivable, especially in light of the electric events of last fall that were nationally characterized by #BelieveAllWomen and #MeToo. It’s humiliating and embarrassing to all Virginia citizens, especially women, that these women are getting more respect on national television than they are in the Virginia legislature. I hope, and expect, that you will stand up and address this unfortunate situation!
THANK YOU delegate Reid for supporting the end of Restraint & Seclusion!!!!!
Delegate Reid, I was just made aware of the vote regarding late term abortion up to 40 weeks in Virginia. I’d like to know what was your stance and how did you vote?
