The Wheeler School hosts a “Working Group for White Parents and Guardians” and recommends ‘Woke Kindergarten’ on its website


In April, the first “Antiracism Working Group for White Parents and Guardians” was held, initiated by several parents “to support Wheeler’s ongoing commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.”

Other parents (and staff members) found this concerning—several reached out to us at Parents Defending Education.

Parents also contacted us about the “Anti-Racist Resources” on the school website. One complained that they were “ideological and hyper-political in nature, unvetted, totally biased and in some cases, riddled with inaccuracies.”

The other was “appalled” by the Woke Kindergarten video below.
