New Trier’s Race Seminar Features Both Kinds Of Public K-12 Education

Much attention is focused on the totalitarian re-education camps that college campuses have become. But it’s in K-12 where the indoctrination is generally begun.

A case study is New Trier High School, a top public high school in Illinois that enjoys a national reputation because of its many famous graduates in the arts and politics including Rock Hudson, Charlton Heston, Scott Turow, Liz Phair and Don Rumsfeld.

Located in a wealthy, suburban enclave, black students account for less than 1% of New Trier’s student body.

To make up for its diversity deficit, the high school’s $420,000/year superintendent and her administrative cadre of six-figure, dyed-in-the-wool Democrats instituted a mandatory racial rights seminar day during Black History Month.

A review of the seminar’s offerings reveals the Black-Lives-Matter-directed sessions to be among the more measured amid those that characterize the Chicago Police as perpetrators of urban genocide and Colin Kaepernick’s bended knee as something that should be immortalized in bronze.

A parents group objected to the one-sidedness of the program suggesting conservative black speakers to broaden the perspectives for consideration by students.

That notion was summarily rejected.

Just as Bob’s Country Bunker in “The Blues Brothers” featured both kinds of music, country and western, so one of the country’s best high schools features both kinds of public K-12 education, virtue-signaling and bigot-baiting.
