Getting schooled

What the hell, why not?

Parents at the posh Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School are outraged they were never told of a fourth “R” being added to the curriculum: raunch.

In addition to the usual reading, ‘riting and ‘rithmetic, the school this month launched lessons on porn — without informing families or allowing them to opt out, parents fumed.

When juniors at the $47,000-a-year Manhattan school showed up for a health and sexuality workshop, most thought it was “just going to be about condoms or birth control,” a student told The Post.

Instead, it was something called “Pornography Literacy: An intersectional focus on mainstream porn,” taught by Justine Ang Fonte, who’s the director of Health & Wellness at another elite prep school, Dalton.

Fonte’s presentation, some of which was seen by The Post, included a list of the most searched pornographic terms of 2019, including “creampie,” “anal,” “gangbang,” “stepmom” and more.

It may seem odd, but I don’t have much of a problem with any of that. Why? Because so far, although there’s definitely some kink to be found, I see no mention of the words “transgender,” “cis-het,” “genderqueer,” or other such Wokistry on the list. While certainly not what anyone would call plain-vanilla, it’s still straight-up heterosexual. Makes for a refreshing change of pace, and not at all what I would expect.

One part of the porn presentation involved something called the “marketability of Only Fans,” the hot new app used mostly for sex work. One slide included a photo of a pretty young woman who appeared to be promoting OnlyFans-type work.

I identify as non-binary,” she is quoted as saying, “but because that hasn’t hit the general consciousness of the adult industry, I say ‘girl,’ because that’s what people who want to buy my content will be looking for.”

Dammit. Oh well, so much for that, I guess.

On a more serious note, it would be easy to miss what I consider to be the crucial issue here. See if you can spot it.

The female Columbia Prep student said most of the kids, aged 16 and 17, watched the lesson on Zoom from home — which is what alerted some parents to it — but some were at the school and made to assemble in the gym together to watch it on their laptops.

“We were all so shocked and mortified,” the girl told The Post. “We were all like, ‘Why are they doing this? Why do they think it’s OK?’

The girl spoke to The Post with her mother. Both spoke on the condition of anonymity.

“No one wants to be cancelled or lose their livelihood and that can be done in an instant,” the mother said. “Most parents feel the same way I do about not going public but at the same time we’re incredibly frustrated by what’s going on. None of the parents knew this was planned. We were completely left in the dark. It makes us wonder what else the school is up to.”

So this is where we are in 2021 “America,” folks: parents don’t dare utter a peep of complaint concerning the ethical propriety of having some freaky-deaky lesbo “teacher” indoctrinate their kids into the world of hardcore porn for fear of being “cancelled.”

Think on that for a minute or two. Incredibly, it does get even more appalling from there, but I’ll let y’all click on over for that.

Always amusing (in a pathetic way) to see parents shelling out 47 grand a year saying they have no idea what the school is doing with (to) their kids. Back in the day I attended a public school, and the parents knew exactly what was going on because they were involved in everything. You could hardly turn around without tripping over one parent or another.

I guess these modern private schools cost so much the parents spend all their time working to earn the tuition, and are not involved in their kids’ lives. Might as well just downgrade them to ‘genetic donors and cash spigots’ and admit the schools own the kids outright.

“and the parents knew exactly what was going on because they were involved in everything”

My mother volunteered as a school nurse for many years while I and my sisters were in the public screwls.

My wife volunteered to teach reading to those that were behind in the schools.

Way too many parents have abandoned all responsibility for their children. They can’t all be in the schools but there are plenty of other ways to keep an eye on the system.

There are no more textbooks so I can’t just browse through them like my parents did. The curriculum was printed out for each course and sent home on Day One. Between that and the text books they had some idea what was going on. They also went to Open School Night to meet all my teachers. Finally, we had the evening talk about “what did you learn in school today?”. I can’t imagine what would have happened if I said “we watched Debbie Does Dallas in English Class today…”.

Never mind tossing off a casual “oh we watched porn”.

Nowadays I still meet the teachers and I do ask what they are learning. With remote I see what they are learning as well. The HS seems fine but the Middle School has trended Woker each day for the past two years. One more year there. I have to do the lessons work sometimes and not let the kid read some of the drivel. Screw that. He’s just going to learn something harmful and he’s not going to learn something useful, I’d rather he just put in the Bugs Bunny Classics while I spit back ridiculous Leftism back at them. Sometimes I want to make it so absurdly over the top as to be satire but then I realize they’d probably take it at face value.

Not being able to view their textbooks and the vagueness of any curriculums posted anywhere do make things a bit harder to sound out. I just keep plugging away to drill down when and where I can.

Barry

No more textbooks because of remote “learning”? Or did I miss something? I *think* my grandchildren still have books.

kennycan

Everyone gets a Chrome Book now and lessons are uploaded and that was the case ever since we moved here. So not because if the “remote” as far as I can tell.

Barry

Huh, news to me. I’ll have to check on the grandchildren.

Aesop

How many times would that story be told if Leftard freak got all beaten to a bloody pulp with pipes and chains the next week, in some quiet back alley?

Followed by the principal needing an emergency set of permanent dentures, same-same?

 

It’s called “skin in the game”.

Some things call for more than a strongly worded note of protest, and some lessons sink in better when you tenderize the target area beforehand.

Just saying.

SteveF

Similarly, if peaceful protesters were to be beaten down and then each have a finger cut off or their left eye gouged out, there’d be a lot fewer volunteers for the next peaceful protest.

Ironbear

There are so very, very many people who are alive only because it’s illegal to kill them.

So far.

John Wilder

This is always, always the bridge too far.

The backlash is coming . . . .

kennycan

I can’t understand people who have that kind of money and k-12 age children live in Manhattan anyway.

kennycan

Ok this is too much:

Columbia Grammar & Prep School, on 93rd Street near Central Park, was founded in 1764 and its notable alumni include Herman Melville, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Ally Sheedy.

Gellar and Sheedy are notable alumni? They belong in the same sentence as Melville?

They can’t find any other two notable alumni to mention except two mediocre actresses? Sheesh.

So I looked at the list of Notable Alumni in Wiki. A Nobel Prize winning physicist is an alumni. Gell-Mann.

Oh and Jeffrey Toobin. Yes that J. Toobin.
I wonder how he did in this class.

HazHap

Well known alumni, perhaps, would be a better description than ‘notable.’ These days, I expect tons of people would ask who Melville was. What movies or TV series was he in?

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards." – Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." — Daniel Webster

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged." - GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free." - Donald Surber
