Obsession with race afflicts private schools too

Even posh private schools are not immune to viewing every facet of society through the lens of skin color (“Dalton headmaster quits while Brearley dad writes scathing letter,” New York Post, Apr. 17).  The latest example is the Brearley School in New York City, where tuition runs to $54,000 a year.

Angry and appalled that his daughter, who had been a student at the school since kindergarten, was subjected to this indoctrination, Andrew Gutmann fired off a 1,700-word letter taking the administration and Board of Trustees to task.  The school responded that his letter was “deeply offensive and harmful.”

I fail to see how it was when it stated the truth about how the curriculum has devolved.  As for the school’s claim that students felt frightened and intimidated by the letter, I say they need to grow up.  There is nothing in the letter that can upset a student.
