Governor Youngkin Calls for Attorney General Jason Miyares to Investigate

Following recent news reports, Governor Glenn Youngkin today called for Virginia’s Attorney General Jason Miyares

to investigate allegations that information about National Merit Awards, as determined by student PSAT scores, was

withheld from students at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology until after important deadlines

for college scholarships had passed.

“We need to get to the bottom of what appears to be an egregious, deliberate attempt to disadvantage high performing

students at one of the best schools in the country,” said Governor Glenn Youngkin. “Parents and students deserve

answers and Attorney General Miyares will initiate a full investigation. I believe this failure may have caused material

harm to those students and their parents, and that this failure may have violated the Virginia Human Rights Act.”

The letter to the Attorney General can be found below
