Save Your School
The “cult of wokeness” is problematic because it chills and also compels the speech of children during their formative years. If these regressive theories are to become “legitimate,” they require scrutiny, intellectual honesty, and vigorous debate, the exact things they prohibit. In fact, any effort to do so results in punishment (cancellation).
We wrote this parent playbook to help start important conversations. The incessant focus on DEI (as schools enforce it) is “anti-intellectual,” which is the opposite of what one would expect from high-quality Independent Schools. Does your school seem to care more about the people running it than the children it purports to serve? Parents, even without a background in education, are their children’s first and most important teachers. Trust your instincts.
