BLM At School And Other Videos Scrubbed From National Association of Independent Schools After Legal Insurrection Exposé
Access to hundreds of hours of programs removed, fitting a pattern of NAIS trying to hide from public view their efforts to racialize and radicalize private schools.
Shortly after the publication of my exposé of a BLM at School seminar hosted by the National Association of Independent School (NAIS), the organization scrubbed their storefront website, ceasing to make hundreds of sessions from previous years available as digital downloads.
My article for Legal Insurrection, published this Sunday, March 6th, analyzed several short clips from “Growing Young Voices: Understanding Black Lives Matter for Teachers,” a session originally presented at NAIS’ People of Color Conference (PoCC) in 2019. The presentation had been offered for sale to the public on the NAIS site, but were unavailable on the evening of Thursday, March 10th, four days after the article was released.
On Wednesday, March 9th, Emma-Jo Morris at Breitbart.com published another article exposing more sessions from PoCC 2021. These were not available for purchase online, but I had also reviewed many of them when researching “Inside the Woke Indoctrination Machine,” an editorial on PoCC I co-wrote with Brearley dad Andrew Gutmann. Several video clips from PoCC 2021 are also available on Legal Insurrection.
The NAIS storefront page for “Growing Young Voices” was archived Sunday night, shortly after publication of the BLM exposé.
In the now inaccessible session, two elementary school educators from the University of Chicago Lab School detailed how they inculcate their fourth- and fifth-grade students in BLM’s 13 principles, in order to steer them towards political activism.
Among Black Lives Matter’s 13 principles are ethics such as “Collective Value,” “Queer Affirming,” “Trans Affirming,” “Globalism,” and “Restorative Justice.”
The NAIS had partnered with PlaybackNow, a “custom onsite & virtual conference solution provider,” to host hour-long presentations from previous years, selling digital access to over 200 individual seminars for $25 each. Package deals were also available. Conference sessions had been available for PoCC 2019 and all NAIS annual conferences from the years 2017 to 2020.
Access to all these sessions are now discontinued.
I received a copy of an email indicating that the page was taken down at the request of NAIS.DONATE
