Teacher says he helped write Common Core to end white privilege

You could almost hear something like this whispering from the pages: Students, please keep your white privilege in your locker at all times.

Dr. David Pook, a professor at Granite State College and chair of the history department at The Derryfield School in Manchester, N.H., worked with state officials to write the state’s Common Core standards. During a Monday town hall meeting on the subject, he let everyone know why.

“The reason why I helped write the standards and the reason why I am here today is that as a white male in society I am given a lot of privilege that I didn’t earn,” Pook said in a video shared by Campus Reform.

The crowded groaned.

Pook’s fieldwork in combating white privilege includes his work at The Derryfield School, which is 91 percent white with an annual tuition of nearly $30,000.
