Columbia Prof Urges Parents to Remove Their Kids From New Jersey Prep School Over Critical Race Theory
“Truly antiracist parents, in the name of love of their kids, should pull them from the Dwight-Englewood school as of next fall”
This is about the situation at the Dwight-Englewood school, which we just covered in another post. Parents across the country should take this professor’s advice.

Columbia professor calls on parents to pull kids from NJ prep school over critical race theory
A prominent black Columbia University professor has called on New Jersey parents to pull their kids out of a prestigious Bergen County, NJ, prep school after an English teacher resigned over what she called a “hostile culture of conformity and fear” created by critical race theory.
“All hail Dana Stangel-Plowe, who has resigned from the Dwight-Englewood school, which teaches students ‘antiracism’ that sees life as nothing but abuse of power, and teaches that cringing, hostile group identity against oppression is the essence of a self,” John McWhorter, who is also a contributor to The Atlantic magazine, tweeted Tuesday.
“Truly antiracist parents, in the name of love of their kids, should pull them from the Dwight-Englewood school as of next fall,” McWhorter continued. “Only this will arrest these misguided Elect parishioners from their quest to forge a new reality for us all.”
In a resignation letter posted Tuesday on the website of the Foundation Against Intolerance & Racism, English teacher Stangel-Plowe accused Dwight-Englewood administrators of “failing our students” by embracing critical race theory.
“[S]tudents arrive in my classroom accepting this theory as fact: People born with less melanin in their skin are oppressors, and people born with more melanin in their skin are oppressed,” she wrote. “Men are oppressors, women are oppressed, and so on. This is the dominant and divisive ideology that is guiding our adolescent students.”
