Many private New York City schools that once denigrated are looking for the next generation of conscious teachers to preach the gospel of anti-racism and critical race theory, a review of job applications by The Post shows.
Leading the way is the ethical culture Fieldston School, which is in the market for a ballet instructor, “committed to challenging Western dance forms and hierarchical and pedagogical practices that often center whitewashing in dance classes and stages,” According to a job description posted on the school’s website.

Even the sciences at Fieldston – a Bronx institution where tuition is $55,510 a year – have not been spared from the progressive mandate. A posting looking for a high school biology teacher states that applicants should have “an understanding of and commitment to cultural competence, and how to support a diverse student population, especially through teaching more inclusive science curricula.”
A representative for Fieldston did not respond to a request for clarification about the “inclusive science curriculum.”
STEM subjects face a similar awakening at Grace Church School—$57,330 a year—in downtown Manhattan, where math and science center advisors must have “outreach of student education for diverse learners and a commitment to anti-education.”
One of the listed responsibilities for the secretary position at the $58,350-a-year Riverdale Country School is to proofread report cards “for the proper use of pronouns.”
Jonathan Butcher, an education fellow at the Heritage Foundation, said the Critical Race Theory and so-called anti-racism curriculum “promote a worldview that believes that everything in public and private life should be considered in relation to racial identity.”
