We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
All the prep schools are doing this, although perhaps not as aggressively. They are scared that, if they don't, they will get blackballed by the Woke elite colleges and universities and their graduates won't get in. Yes, there is a secret ranking of the prep schools that all the elite college admissions officers put together.
I guarantee you that if you go to the homepage of every prep school in America you will see this Critical Race BS or a link to "Equity and Inclusion."
Just clicked on my own school, and here it is under "About":
In addition, ******* is committed to social, emotional and ethical learning (SEEL) – to educate the whole person. The School also seeks to create a diverse educational community that's rooted in equity and inclusion as fundamental human rights, as well as a sustainable campus that can become a model for other educational institutions and the larger community.
The other thing you are going to see increasingly is the phrase "Social Harmony," taken straight from the Communist Chinese. Anyone who does not agree with the goals of Equity and Inclusion is disrupting Social Harmony and is a Rightwing Extremist. As his disharmonious letter demonstrates, Mr. Gutmann is a Rightwing Extremist.
Here is Brearley's response (2 screen shots). I suspect the daughter will have trouble getting into an American college when the time comes. As for getting into another prep school, they probably will have to move to another part of the country, but may get blackballed from schools there as well.
