This ‘White-Supremacy Culture’ Training Is Far Worse Than Nonsense

Racist Educator Promoting Failure...

New city schools Chancellor Richard Carranza.
James Keivom

Post Editorial Board

Is Chancellor Richard Carranza trying to fight school bias — or standards of any kind? Judging from the seminars he has forced on top Department of Education officials, it’s the latter.
It’s not just the slide shown in Tuesday’s Post, which outlines how “white-supremacy culture” includes such concepts as “objectivity” and “worship of the written word.”
Concepts, that is, that are transparently vital to a decent educations system — even if, like anything else, they can be abused by racists or anyone else.
The slide is from “Dismantling Racism: A Workbook for Social Change Groups,” a bible for Carranza’s mandatory school-brass training — and it’s all utter flimflam.
Excessive individualism can be bad for teamwork; lots of questions have more than one right answer; “bigger” and “more” don’t always mean real progress: These are all vapid platitudes, not deep insights.
The idea that what ails New York’s schools is widespread racism is ludicrous on its face. So if, like Carranza & Co., you’re determined to spend millions on “anti-bias training,” you have no choice but to grab for such claptrap.
Yet this isn’t just a waste of money: It’s promoting the fuzziest possible thinking in a system where rational, civilized discussion is desperately needed.
Everyone’s entitled to his own view? As the great Daniel Patrick Moynihan put it, that may be true for opinions, but not for facts.
And the suggestion that whites value concepts like right and wrong more than their minority peers do is itself deeply offensive.
Then again, Carranza himself insists that a race-blind exam is in fact racist simply because it doesn’t produce the racial results he wants. And parents who question his race-driven plans for school reform, he says, are also racist.
No wonder he needs his top staff trained to believe in nonsense.
