Even the elite schools teach stupidity

“I don’t even want people knowing I’m a capitalist.”

— student at an elite private school

The essential Bari Weiss fled the dishonest New York Times to pursue journalism instead of indoctrination. Ms. Weiss details the brain washing on-going in the $50,000/year private prep schools that cater to the nation’s elite. “These schools are called prep schools because they prepare America’s princelings to take their place in what we’re told is our meritocracy.”

The mis-education of America’s elites

What does it say about the current state of meritocracy that it wants kids fluent in critical race theory and “white fragility?” — even if such knowledge comes at the expense of Shakespeare? “The colleges want children, customers, that are going to be pre-aligned to certain ideologies that originally came out of those colleges,” says a STEM teacher at one of New York’s prestigious prep schools. “I call it woke-weaning.”

Power in America now comes from speaking Woke, a highly complex and ever-evolving language. The Grace Church School in Manhattan, for example, offers a 12-page guide to “inclusive language,” which discourages people from using the word “parents” — “folks” is preferred …

At Fieldston School, an elective is offered to high school juniors and seniors called “historicizing whiteness.” At Grace Church School, seniors can take a course called “Allying: Why? Who? and How?” The curriculum includes a ’zine called “Accomplices Not Allies” that declares “the work of an accomplice in anti-colonial struggle is to attack colonial structures & ideas,” alongside a photograph of a burning police car. Harvard-Westlake, in its extensive antiracist plan announced this summer, included “redesigning the 11th grade US History course from a critical race theory perspective.” …

The ideology is increasingly prevalent at the local public school. The incoming New York City schools chancellor is a vocal proponent of critical race theory. In Burbank, the school district just told middle- and high school teachers to stop teaching To Kill a Mockingbird and Of Mice and Men. The Sacramento school district is promoting racial segregation by way of “racial affinity groups,” where students can “cultivate racial solidarity and compassion and support each other in sitting with the discomfort, confusion, and numbness that often accompany white racial awakening.”

The San Diego school district recently held a training in which white teachers were told that they “spirit murder” Black children.

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Think it’s any different in Madison’s public schools where “cultural competence” keeps you on the payroll? See “The 40% solution.

What is to be done?

    I saw the collapse of our society coming in college and decided not to have kids. Alas for that plan, i have grandkids by marriage that are as dear. I apologized to the 20-year-old granddaughter for the world we are leaving her.

    It certainly reaffirms my wife and I not having kids.

    If we did I would make sure they knew history, Shakespeare, Biology, Chemistry, and Math. Not any of that foolishness that is creeping in. That nonsense did not Bezos, Musk, Buffet, etc… all richer than Creches.

    Sad, so sad. These kids will never be exposed to any thought deeper than one given on T.V., Youtube, Facebook or Twitter. Are any of them ever going to read say, the Bible? Are any of them going to read Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago? How about The Nazi Doctors by Robert J. Lifton?

    How about American history? The speeches given by George Washington and Abraham Lincoln? Will they ever learn about the wars we fought in order to free other people at the tremendous expense of the lives and treasure of our own people?

    Will they ever learn the true history of Socialism or Communism? Study both forms of oppression from the point of view of the people who lived under either one or both of those systems of oppression?

    Will they ever be exposed to and discuss the finer points of morality, theology and eschatology?

    Probably not.

    Except for the few enlightened commentators here, we are all just a bunch of Fascist Nazi white supremacist’s. If you loved the U.S.A then we fall under that category. If you do not like the new U.S.S.A then you fall under that category. This never ends well for anyone. Happy Equal Misery for all , Serfs

    “In less than one hundred years, we’ve gone from teaching Greek and Latin in high school to teaching remedial English in college.” Back (way back) in the mid-sixties, when I was in high school, Latin was indeed offered–this at a public high school in a small town (Merrill) in north- central WI. (Fool that I was, I didn’t take it.) I very much doubt it’s still being offered. Nowadays, we see an American version of political indoctrination the likes of which hasn’t been seen since Nazi Germany or Stalinist Russia. Of course, the leftist ideologues on school boards and teachers who see themselves as crusaders for “equity” and “social justice” are mainly to blame, but parents who knowingly sacrifice their kids to this venomous brainwashing are just as culpable.

      How will we compete in the future? I fear China is going to eat us for lunch.

    I attended public high school in Madison during the same era as Gary. Curriculum: biology, chemistry (“junior” high, now called middle school), required passing a general science course. Civics, economics, choice of four languages, American and world history and literature, fine arts, advanced math. The brainy kids cut their teeth on trigonometry and calculus. I was not one of them. Freshman English (literature, mostly) was enjoyable. And band, orchestra, choir, double quartet, triple trio. I am not making this up. This was Madison Central University High School mid-sixties. A different world…
