Elite NYC K-8 school teaches children about 'white privilege'

FOX NEWS- An elite New York City K-8 school is instituting a controversial new diversity program that segregates students based on race.

Bank Street School for Children on the Upper West Side has introduced the new “Racial Justice and Advocacy” curriculum, which separates the school's 430 students into an "advocacy group" for white students and the "kids of color affinity group."

According to The New York Post, white students are taught to increase their "awareness of the prevalence of whiteness and privilege," challenge "notions of colorblindness (and) assumptions of 'normal,' 'good,' and 'American'" and "understand and own European ancestry and see the tie to privilege."

Meanwhile, students of color are encouraged to "voice their feelings" and "share experiences about being a kid of color."
