Woke $57k-a-year NYC school tells kids not to say 'mom and dad' or wish Merry Christmas in bizarre 'inclusion glossary'

A WOKE school in New York City that charges parents $57,000 per year has given students a glossary instructing them not to use the words "mom and dad" or wish someone a Merry Christmas.

Students at the Grace Church School in Manhattan were handed a 12-page glossary filled with correct terminology and other "inclusive language" to use in referring to someone like their parents or guardians.


Often, the pointers regard making an inclusive environment around one's gender, religion, material goods, or abilities.

In one such example, the school wrote "Instead of mom and dad, at Grace we say grown-ups, folks, or family."

The guide was intended "to promote a sense of belonging for all of our students," said Grace's assistant head Reverend Robert M. Pennoyer II.

"Grace is an Episcopal school," Pennoyer told the Columbia Journalism Review. "As part of our Episcopal identity, we recognize the dignity and worth common to humanity."


"Instead of Merry Christmas! or Happy Holidays!" the guide says. "Say Have a great break!"

Other guides for students include telling them to avoid using girls' and boys' colors or toys, to replace gendered signifiers like husband and wife with spouse or partner, and offers remarks to respond when someone says something non-inclusive.

The 12-page sheet also has a "glossary of identity and shared value terms" that include affinity or alliance groups, antiracism, equity, gender equity, implicit bias, inclusion, institutional racism, intersectionality, microaggression, race and white privilege and supremacy.


The glossary is coupled with classes students can take at the school, including a senior course called "Allying: Why? Who? and How?"

The class comes with a pamphlet called "Accomplices not Allies" that states "the work of an accomplice in anti-colonial struggle is to attack colonial structures & ideas."

The text is set next to a photo of a burning police car.
