Woke NY School Goes After Language. Parents Pay $57K A Year For This Madness.

Grace Church School in NoHo (an East Village neighborhood of the borough of Manhattan in New York City) is coming under fire for a “Grace Inclusive Language Guidelines” the school published. The school has grade levels for Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade. To attend the school cost $57K a year.

The guide is a look into the minds of “woke” people and how schools can, will, and do brainwash kids. It is therefore unsurprising that the school is under fire for some of the ludicrous ideas they are putting forth.

Regarding genders the school wants people to say:


In regards to families, the school wants people to use:

Regarding sexual orientation:

Regarding speaking about race:

In regards to religion:

(A school that is tied to a Episcopalian Church doesn’t want people to say “Merry Christmas?” Oy vey.)

In regard to disabilities:

(We wonder if there are handicapped parking spaces around the school?)

Finally, in regards to socioeconomic issues:

The guidelines discuss things like “Implicit Bias” and even points to the video below:

(If a person hears “peanut butter,” they automatically think “peanut butter and jelly?” Not Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups? Not Elvis’ favorite peanut butter and banana sandwich? Not peanut butter and crackers? Not the age old debate of “chunky or smooth” peanut butter? We all think of “peanut butter and jelly?” That there is the essence o the problem. Woke people tell others what they are thinking and think that only they have the “correct” thoughts. All other thoughts – especially those that contradict them – must be silenced. Wouldn’t that be “implicit woke bias?”)

That’s crazy and if people want to use peanut butter as an example of “implicit bias,” not only are they reaching, they are reaching into fantasy land.

“Implicit Bias” gets destroyed by facts and logic in this video by Ben Shapiro:

The school released a statement on their website saying in part:

Statement on Inclusive Language Guide

The controversy surrounding the Grace Church School Inclusive Language Guide for faculty and staff is based on false information. Some news accounts incorrectly reported that the guide was for students and that we banned the use of words such as “mom” and “dad” as politically incorrect. Nothing could be further from the truth.

We provided the Inclusive Language Guide to faculty and staff last September as one of many initiatives to combat racism and promote the most welcoming and respectful learning environment possible for the entire community. The guide was not issued as a mandatory policy or included in curricula or student instruction, and it was never intended for student use. We should have been more explicit about the guide’s intent and purpose: a tool for professional development and adult continuing education to help our faculty and staff foster a culture of sensitivity and inclusivity in interactions with our students.

Yet the guidelines themselves say:

Overview

The goal of this guide is to provide the community with more inclusive language that is aligned with the mission of Grace Church School. While we recognize hateful language that promotes racism, misogyny, homophobia, and other forms of discrimination are already addressed in our school handbooks, we also recognize that we can do more than ban hateful lanugage; we can use language to create welcoming and inclusive spaces. This guide addresses ways we can remove harmful assumptions from the way we interact with each other.

We know this guide is not exhaustive, and language is constantly evolving. Polite and thoughtful questions are typically the best way to get accurate information rather than basing decisions on assumptions. Be aware that people may not always welcome questions, and they are not obligated
to respond. (emphasis ours)

We have a hard time believing that the “community” of which the school speaks is only for teachers or school staff.

There is also a good bit of irony in the school claiming it wants more “inclusive” language by not wanting people to use certain terms and language.

To be fair, the school is getting slammed by “banning” the words in this guidelines, but that doesn’t appear to be the case as the guideline doesn’t mention any penalties or repercussions from people not following the guidelines.

Still, we have to wonder if a teacher or staff member were to say “Merry Christmas!” to someone would they be called in on the carpet for violating this guideline.

The bottom line is that in school sponsored by the the Episcopalian Church which claims to be Christian, one would think the school would hold the values of Christ, instead of trading its supposed “Christian” values for being woke.
