Can Racism Be Stopped in the Third Grade? by lindaoppenheim | May 26, 2015 | Article | 1 comment This May 19, 2015 New York Magazine article describes an experiment at Fieldston Lower School, which starts when 8-year-olds are sorted by race and has some very liberal parents fuming. 1 Comment bfiggefox on May 26, 2015 at 7:35 pm QUOTE FROM THE ARTICLE: This same parent who sends her children to Lower (school at Fieldston) because she values diversity tends not to dwell on the fact that she has few close friends of color; that her neighborhood is almost entirely white; that her nanny or housecleaner or doorman has brown skin. The program at Lower was designed, and is supported in large part, by people who have spent their lives on the other side of that well-meaning silence and can testify that it’s no way to thrive.
