Schools now subjected to "diversity audits" that are nothing more than fascist "woke

• Natural News - Ethan Huff

(Natural News) One of the nation's leading independent schools recently conducted a "diversity audit" to determine how "woke" its teachers are about "sexual identity," "social justice," and other far-left "virtues."

The Harvard-Westlake School in Los Angeles brought in an outside consultant to quiz faculty on their compliance with progressive views in six categories of diversity: racial identity, religious identity, socioeconomic status, family structure, sexual identity, and disability status.

Teachers were asked to assess themselves in terms of how effectively they feel they convey each topic to their students. They were also asked to fill out a worksheet indicating how effectively they think their classes, regardless of subject matter, promote "diversity."

The sheet specifically asked teachers to describe how their courses "foster an understanding of systems of power and encourage students to develop tools for equity and justice."

In light of last summer's "racial justice protests," Harvard-Westlake thought it would be a good idea to analyze how effectively social justice ideology permeates class curriculum, and make adjustments accordingly.

All of Harvard-Westlake's roughly 200 teachers were given the worksheet as part of a "Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion" (DEI) curricular review, which was initiated by the Glasgow Group, a Maryland-based consultancy that connects independent schools to professional "diversity administrators."
