McAuliffe boasts he'll 'build education' in wake of saying parents should have little say

Democratic Virginia gubernatorial nominee Terry McAuliffe declared that he plans to “build education,” just two weeks after he created a firestorm by saying parents should have little say in what public schools teach their children.

In a video taken Tuesday by the conservative Virginia Rising research group, McAuliffe was seen leaving an education roundtable discussion in Alexandria and chastising a maskless tracker who asked about his education stance.

“Who do you think should be in control of education if not Virginia parents?” the tracker asked as McAuliffe walked to his vehicle.

“Have you been vaccinated yet?” McAuliffe fired back. “That’s the question I want to know. You should have a mask on. … You’re dangerous here.”

“I’ll build education,” he later declared before getting into the passenger side of the vehicle. “That’s why Fox News has me leading. Glenn Youngkin destroyed Virginia’s education system.”

Virginia Rising Action also recorded a portion of the roundtable event at the Charles Houston Recreation Center in Alexandria, where most, if not all, of the attendees wore a mask except for McAuliffe. A photo tweeted by McAuliffe himself showed him without a mask
