Dalton School, Via The Naked Dollar Blog

Teachers and faculty at one of New York City’s most elite private schools created a list of 24 demands for school administrators to combat “anti-Blackness.” 

The Naked Dollar blog on Friday posted a petition signed by 120 members of the Dalton School staff asking school administrators to implement a series of anti-racist measures. Teachers and faculty asked the K-12 school to pay off student loans for black faculty and abolish advanced courses if black students are not performing on par with white peers by 2023. The list also invites each member of the Dalton School faculty to “produce individual public anti-racist statements.” 

Other items on the list call for revising curriculum. Teachers proposed that administrators add mandatory courses that “center Black liberation and challenges to white supremacy” with a credit requirement “equivalent to or greater than” other departments. Anti-racist curriculum should be “embedded” in the school’s curriculum, just like English and math, the teachers said. 

Teachers and faculty also asked administrators to publish staff salaries based on race and gender and collect and release data on student discipline and race.

The Technocratization of Public Education

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is directing $1.1 million to fit students in seven US pubic school districts with “galvanic skin response” bracelets. The devices are designed to measure students’ receptivity to teachers’ lessons through biometric technology that reads and records “skin conductance, a form of electrodermal activity that grows higher during states such as boredom or relaxation.” [1, 2].
