Stand against ACLU to maintain classroom discipline & prayer

We saw an educational system that far too often did not challenge students to reach for their highest and best, so we raised the bar in Virginia with higher academic standards and real accountability. I am always ready to stand against the ACLU and with the teachers of Virginia in their efforts to maintain discipline and respect in classrooms across Virginia. We successfully defended in court against the ACLU our school children’s right to a moment of silence before they start their school day.
