US Dept. of Education curbs decision on race-based ‘affinity groups’


The US Department of Education suspended a decision that found racial “affinity groups” discriminated against students and staff, The Post has learned. The goal of the programs — used by the New York City public school system and other school districts — is to separate students and staff by racial groups in order to help address discrimination and “white privilege.” But the practice of separating schools into racial groups is discriminatory, a determination obtained by the Post found. The findings — reached during the waning days of former President Trump’s time in office in early January — were in response to a complaint about a Chicago-area school district’s “racial equity” training programs and lesson plans: Sources said the findings, if implemented, could apply to New York City and other school districts.
