The Elitist NYC Dalton School is Having a Racial Policy Meltdown

Colin Wright reports:

The Dalton School in Manhattan is having a race meltdown. It's absolutely insane. Teachers are holding the school for ransom with demands, but they're so extreme the school will crumble if they give in. But they'll crumble if they don't, too!

 Here are some of the demands:

This list of demands is only the short version. There are actually 24 much more expansive demands that span 8 full pages.

Wright correctly notes:
Giving in to this ideology is not a winning strategy. Hiring diversity officers will not improve your situation. Diversity officers are good at one thing: finding reasons to justify hiring more diversity officers.

You eventually reach a tipping point where there are so many diversity officers fighting to uncover ever-more nuanced forms of racism and perceived oppression that a school's probability of boiling over in a moral panic for no apparent reason approaches 1.

But it is deeper than that. 

“Parents are terrified to speak up for fear of retribution. Parents are acting like spineless wimps,” an insider told the New York Post.

Dalton is now proudly featuring this on its homepage:

From the Board of Trustees Racial Vision Statement and Progress Report:

All Dalton students will have a deep historical understanding of racial and structural inequities in the U.S., and particularly the history of anti-black racism


 Restructure all volunteer groups (e.g., Parents Association, Alumni Council) to best align with Dalton's vision and anti-racism and inclusion goals


 Create anti-racist website that includes metrics to measure progress and hold us accountable


 Develop a racial literacy curriculum for grades K-8 


 Implement English and History curricular changes for more diverse representation and richer understanding of culture and history of BIPOC people

“My ancestors experienced white supremacy by being slaughtered,” a Jewish parent told The Post.  “The idea that being white automatically means you are privileged or a white supremacist is ridiculous. My child comes from people who had to fight for everything they got.

“It’s just about skin color now.”

 A Dalton parent who spoke to The Post predicted that 30 to 40 percent of parents of kids in the Class of 2025 will pull them out of the school and transfer them as a result of the manifesto.

The Dalton student population (K-12) is 1,322 and the annual tuition is $44,640.



  1. Rich liberals shooting themselves in da foot. Like that car wreck you know you shouldn't stare at but you look...
    Shame that it's their kids who suffer.
    It's interesting that the Jewish parent brings up the fact that they were the victims of "white supremacy". Huh, but now they're white. Well, in point of fact, they always WERE white, But that's another rant.

  2. My how grand, to be a Star-Bellied Sneetch in today's world! Where's Sylvester McMonkey McBean when you need him?

  3. If you lie down with dogs, then you'll get fleas.

  4. *click* bang! another institution commits suicide

  5. Sounds damaged beyond repair. Looked at their Wikipedia article, first thing that popped out to me was Jeffrey Epstein taught there from 1973-75.
