Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin's office pushed back on Democrat claims that the state's draft revised education standards would ban teaching students about Martin Luther King, Jr.
Documents obtained by Fox News Digital show the revised education standards draft included educating students in kindergarten through fifth grade about all holidays, including Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

The documents also noted the initial draft listed examples of holidays but did not include the civil rights leader’s holiday enumerated as an example, and the current draft standards before the Virginia Board of Education have been updated with the holiday included as an enumerated example.
