Harvey Goldman pulled his 9-year-old from Heschel School after discovering he was paying $43,000 a year for his daughter to be taught critical race theory.
"They were teaching these young children about having white privilege, murder of George Floyd [even though] at that point there was no established murder, [and] Black Lives Matter–which I believe is Marxist and destructive," he told Fox News's "Fox and Friends" program.
Goldman revealed he first had suspicions when he realized that a liberal perspective on the world would be added to class subjects at the school, on West End Avenue near 60th Street.
"I heard about it because I read one of their newsletters that came out," he said according to the broadcaster. "There is a little blurb about changing the curriculum and I questioned [it.]."
The father believes the
new curriculum encourages underage children to feel uncomfortable about their race instead of inspiring positive change.
"What ever happened to regular math and English?" he said. "Little children do not need to feel bad about the color of their skin but they are teaching them to feel bad about who they are. Schools are supposed to be teaching you confidence."
