*To the students and faculty of our high school:*

*I am your new principal, and honored to be so. There is no*
*greater calling than to teach young people.*

*I would like to apprise you of some important changes*
*coming to our school. I am making these changes because I am convinced
that most of the ideas that have dominated public education in America have
worked against you, against your teachers and against our country.*


*First, this school will no longer honor race or ethnicity.*
*I could not care less if your racial makeup is black, brown, red, yellow
or white. I could not care less if your origins are African, Latin
American, Asian or European or if your ancestors arrived here on the
Mayflower or on slave ships. The only identity I care about, the only one
this school will recognize, is your individual identity -- your character,
your scholarship, your humanity. And the only national identity this school
will care about is American.*

*This is an American public school, and American public*
*schools were created to make better Americans. If you wish to affirm an
ethnic, racial or religious identity through school, you will have to go
elsewhere. We will end all ethnicity, race and non-American
nationality-based celebrations. They undermine the motto of America , one
of its three central values -- epluribus Unum, "from many, one." And this
school will be guided by America 's values. This includes all after-school
clubs. I will not authorize clubs that divide students based on any
identities. This includes race, language, religion, sexual orientation or
whatever else may become in vogue in a society divided by political
correctness.*

*Your clubs will be based on interests and passions, not*
*blood, ethnic, racial or other physically defined ties. Those clubs just
cultivate narcissism -- an unhealthy preoccupation with the self -- while
the purpose of education is to get you to think beyond yourself.*
*So we will have clubs that transport you to the wonders and glories of
art, music, astronomy, languages you do not already speak, carpentry and
more. If the only extracurricular activities you can imagine being
interested in are those based on ethnic, racial or sexual identity, that
means that little outside of yourself really interests you.*

*Second, I am uninterested in whether English is your*
*native language. My only interest in terms of language is that you leave
this school speaking and writing English as fluently as possible. The
English language has united America 's citizens for over 200 years, and it
will unite us at this school. It is one of the indispensable reasons this
country of immigrants has always come to be one country. And if you leave
this school without excellent English language skills, I would be remiss in
my duty to ensure that you will be prepared to successfully compete in the
American job market. We will learn other languages here*
*-- it is deplorable that most Americans only speak English -- but if you
want classes taught in your native language rather than in English, this is
not your school.*

*Third, because I regard learning as a sacred endeavor, everything in this
school will reflect learning's elevated status. This means, among other
things, that you and your teachers will dress accordingly. Many people in
our society dress more formally for*
*Hollywood events than for church or school. These people have their
priorities backward. Therefore, there will be a formal dress code at this
school.*

*Fourth, no obscene language will be tolerated anywhere on*
*this school's property -- whether in class, in the hallways or at*
*athletic events. If you can't speak without using the F-word, you can't
speak. By obscene language I mean the words banned by the Federal
Communications Commission, plus epithets such as "Nigger," even when used
by one black student to address another black, or "bitch," even when
addressed by a girl to a girlfriend. It is my intent that by the time you
leave this school, you will be among the few your age to instinctively
distinguish between the elevated and the degraded, the holy and the
obscene.*

*Fifth, we will end all self-esteem programs. In this school, self-esteem
will be attained in only one way -- the way people*
*attained it until decided otherwise a generation ago -- by earning it. One
immediate consequence is that there will be one valedictorian, not eight.*

*Sixth, and last, I am reorienting the school toward*
*academics and away from politics and propaganda. No more time will be
devoted to scaring you about smoking and caffeine, or terrifying you about
sexual harassment or global warming. No more semesters will be devoted to
condom wearing and teaching you to regard sexual relations as only or
primarily a health issue... There will be no more attempts to convince you
that you are a victim because you are not white, or not male, or not
heterosexual or not Christian. We will have failed if any*
*one of you graduates this school and does not consider him or herself
inordinately fortunate -- to be alive and to be an American.*

*Now, please stand and join me in the Pledge of Allegiance*
*to the Flag of our country. As many of you do not know the words, your
teachers will hand them out to you."*


*Pass this along if you agree. . . . *
*If not delete....*
*and *
*later regret it!*
