Prager outlines 6 changes that would occur in his school that would eliminate a lot of the reasons many students leave high school so unprepared. Changes such as removing the focus on race and ethnicity. Prager says he would do away with any courses that encourage students to divide themselves based on their skin color, including extracurricular activities.
“I could not care less if your ancestors arrived here on the Mayflower, or on slave ships,” says Prager. “The only identity this school will recognize is your individual identity. Your character, your scholarship, your humanity. And the only national identity this school will recognize is American.”
Prager dismisses any clubs that focus on identity politics concerning race or sexual orientation, stating that these clubs encourage “narcissism – an unhealthy preoccupation with the self.”
He also details that all “self-esteem programs” will be a thing of the past, and that self-esteem will be gotten the only way it is truly achieved, by actually earning it. He also says there will be no more classes geared toward things like “homophobia,” “condom wearing,” and treating sex as nothing but a health issue.
