Last fall parents at a NYC prep school costing $55,000 per year complained their first-graders were being taught sex-education lessons that included masturbation. Just last week we reported on the same “health and wellness” educator, Justine Ang Fonte, teaching a “porn literacy” workshop at another elite prep school. And now, the Dalton prep school is being “bombarded” by parents with even more complaints on Fonte’s curriculum, reports The Post.
When parents had complained to administrators in the past, they were simply told they “misinterpreted” Dalton’s teachings. “We are not ‘confused,’ We are in fact just seeing very clearly for the first time what a ‘progressive’ education really means at Dalton,” said one mother. “The fact that the school then gaslit parents into thinking we are confused is abysmal” the mother added.
Fonte’s curriculum enveloped in sex, pornography and masturbation is reportedly funded by a $450,000 grant given to Dalton in 2012 by hedge fund billionaire Bill Ackman’s Pershing Square Foundation. Ackman’s ex-wife Karen is on the Dalton board of trustees.
The New York Post reports of the horrifying academics:
The Post viewed video of a cartoon Fonte used in one of her sex ed classes for 6-year-olds showing little kids talking about “touching themselves” for pleasure.
“Hey, how come sometimes my penis gets big sometimes and points in the air?” asks the little boy in the cartoon, leading to an explanation of what an “erection” is.
The boy nods and says, “Sometimes I touch my penis because it feels good.”
Then the little girl character chimes in: “Sometimes, when I’m in my bath or when Mom puts me to bed, I like to touch my vulva too.”
Fonte has reassured parents that she does not use the word “masturbation” in class, and that her lessons teach kids not to touch themselves in public.
They are also taught lessons about “consent.” While one mother conceded that teaching the concept of consent can be valuable in protecting children from abuse, another said telling kids that their own parents or grandparents should not touch them without first asking for permission is extreme.
“Literally parents are supposed to say to their kids, May I hug you?” one parent said.
One mother said another parent told her, “I’m paying $50,000 to these a–holes to tell my kid not to let her grandfather hug her when he sees her?”
Fonte’s lessons for first-graders also include subjects such as gender assigned at birth, gender identity and gender expression.
“Kids have no less than five classes on gender identity — this is pure indoctrination,” a Dalton mother said. “This person should absolutely not be teaching children. Ironically, she teaches kids about ‘consent’ yet she has never gotten consent from parents about the sexually explicit, and age-inappropriate material about transgender to first-graders.”
“We are furious,” a third Dalton mother told The Post.
“We were horrified to learn this was shown to our first-grade 6- and 7-year-old kids without our knowledge or consent. But it’s so hard to fight back because you’ll get canceled and your child will suffer.”
The second Dalton mother said, “I’m not against all sex education but it’s not cool to keep parents in the dark about it.”
NYC Prep School Parents Outraged by ‘Sexuality Workshop’ Forced Upon Students
A New York City prep school had students attend a health and sexuality workshop believing it was “just going to be about condoms or birth control” reports RedState, but “instead, they were treated to a teaching called ‘Pornography Literacy: An intersectional focus on mainstream porn.” Parents, however, had no idea their $47,000/year tuition for their children to attend the Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School was going towards “more than the usual reading, writing, and ‘rithmetic.”
The New York Post reports of the porn class which was taught by Justine Ang Fonte, the director or Health & Wellness at Dalton, another NYC prep school:
The often-explicit slide presentation and lecture by Fonte to the 120 boys and girls included lessons on how porn takes care of “three big male vulnerabilities”; statistics on the “orgasm gap” showing straight women have far fewer orgasms with their partners than gay men or women; and photos of partially-nude women, some in bondage, to analyze “what is porn and what is art.”
Fonte’s presentation, some of which was seen by The Post, included a list of the most searched pornographic terms of 2019, including “creampie,” “anal,” “gangbang,” “stepmom” and more.
One slide cited various porn genres such as “incest-themed,” consensual or “vanilla,” “barely legal,” and “kink and BDSM” (which included “waterboard electro” torture porn as an example).
One female student told the Post they were all shocked and texting each other. “We were all like, ‘What?’ Everyone was texting each other, ‘What the hell is this? It’s so stupid.’ Everyone knows about porn. The worst part of it was that it took place not long before the AP tests and I had to miss both my AP classes for this.”
The Post reported that one part of the porn presentation involved “marketability of Only Fans” an app used for sex work. One woman was highlighted in the presentation who said, “I identify as non-binary,’ she is quoted as saying, ‘but because that hasn’t hit the general consciousness of the adult industry, I say ‘girl,’ because that’s what people who want to buy my content will be looking for.”
After NY Passes Recreational Marijuana, Colleges Increasing ‘Higher’ Education Courses
Higher education is taking the term quite literally. Since the passage of recreational use of marijuana in New York, its colleges and universities are taking the opportunity to add “new courses about cannabis to the syllabus to prepare students for jobs in the budding industry” reports the New York Post.
The courses are “not just offering tokin’ lessons on the history of week, either.” The New York Post reports, “Online Excelsior College is marketing new master’s degree courses in marijuana leading to a graduate certificate in ‘Cannabis Control,’ as well as expanding undergraduate classes.”
Dean of Excelsior’s graduate program Scott Dolan says students will learn about the complexities that the marijuana industry will have to operate in, including complying with numerous government regulations. Dolan also suggests accountants, lawyers, health professionals and people in the insurance industry would benefit from taking the course which will cover “social equity, environmental sustainability, corporate responsibility and public finance.”
The New York Post writes:
Weed is also turning into fertile ground for New York’s public university systems, whose colleges offer degrees in agriculture and law, biology, medicine and business.
Currently, 10 different SUNY campuses offer courses tied to the marijuana and hemp industries. The number of cannabis courses, certificate and training programs and degrees offered to students will “absolutely” increase to match students with new jobs in the emerging marijuana industry, said SUNY Chancellor James Malatras.
“Our mission is to provide access to students to meet workforce demands,” Malatras said in a Sunday interview. “This is not a simple matter. This a seismic shift in the law,” added Malatras.
