A private school in New York’s NOHO district has become completely woke. The Grace Church School is attempting to cancel words like “Mom, Dad, and Parents” since these words make assumptions about children’s private home lives.
The Grace Church School issued a 12-page document to students and their families (family unit?) that illustrates step by step ridiculousness in all 12-pages. (the entire document is in pdf format below).
The Grace Church school offers Early Childhood, Lower School, Middle School, and High School, which one can only assume that the Lower School will have a name change soon. Those kids aren’t lower, get with the times, insert laughter and tears. This almost reminds me of Starbucks calling the small cup a “tall” not to hurt the small cups feelings. Anyhow, I digress.
“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 language; 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,” the guide reads.
Outdated terms, according to the guide, “Traditional Family – we actively try to undo notions of a “typical” or “normal” family structure, each family is unique.”
The school defended the guide, telling City Journal that its goal is to “promote a sense of belonging for all of our students.”
“Grace is an Episcopal school. As part of our Episcopal identity, we recognize the dignity and worth common to humanity,” the Rev. Robert Pennoyer, assistant head of school, said in a statement to the City Journal.
