    Heavy Handed Woke Bilge

    White parents are bad for wanting to raise money for low scoring schools—and teach them French, the racist monsters!! Test scores don’t matter anyway, that’s a racist concept too. I worked in poor public schools for years and a MAJOR factor in their failure was horrible, apathetic teachers that sat in the classrooms every day doing nothing. It wasn’t white parents, it was lousy union backed teachers. Why didn’t you mention that??? If you substituted Asian or Black in the title of this podcast it would be considered racist—which this podcast is. Shame on you.

    Should be required podcast listening

    This should be what required reading is but for podcasts. It’s good ti challenge oneself and our views for the betterment of all children and not just the privileged few.

    Some good info with food for thought

    The anti-white agenda is tiring. There is a broad range of what we call “white”. There is a lot of info here that people need to talk and think about. What are our schools should serve and if they truly being equitable is something everyone should be paying attention to. The white statements are over the top - but again - this raises good topics we all should be talking about!

    What do you expect? It is from The NY Times

    A podcast about race from The NY Times? You don’t even need to listen to it to know the conclusions. Expect to hear a lot of nonsense like white privilege and white fragility. This country would have much better race relations if we did not have e continued race-baiting outlets like this serve up. Two stars given because of production quality - not content which rates zero stars.

    Wow

    This first ep had my blood boiling. There’s no more excuse for white people to not understand their fundamental privileges. Their reality is not real. Wake up.

    Excellent thought-provoking podcast

    I am enjoying this podcast series and the issues it’s forcing me to confront. It’s a shame that talking about race causes so many white people to cry ‘racism’ in the comments but I guess it’s too uncomfortable for some. I didn’t think there was any shaming of the white parents or victimizing of the black and brown ones, just good journalism telling the story of how the ‘gentrification’ of a public school in New York happened and how it was perceived by people involved.

    Wow.

    Incredible reporting. This series shattered my view of the school system in Texas and has reframed my own experience of the Texas public school system in the 90s-00s. Grateful for this perspective.

    Meritocracy is a myth

    I love the snowflake conservatives and their one star ratings. They ignore the historical facts. Their kids didn’t suffer from over crowing or half days of school. They scream about meritocracy while their privileged little angels get a full days school with all the facilities. If their kids are so great and gifted then let them earn their place in one of the schools without the same access. The truth is they don’t want things to be equal because then their kids would actually have to compete against everyone not just a sub group or super privileged.

    Harmful

    America can and should have the best public schools in the world. Instead they are underfunded and poorly organized. The rich are abandoning them for private schools while the rest waste away in a dysfunctional daycare for teens. This is a political and public policy problem, not a cultural one. The blame belongs with the government at the local, state, and (yes) federal levels. But instead of demanding better, this podcast takes a racialized look at the frustrated parents whose children are the victims of this failing system, as if a little more racial consciousness raising would fix the problem. Pure foolishness. We can and should demand more of our public schools—not just literacy but real academic preparation, especially in STEM. This podcast pits worker against worker and let’s the failing institution off the hook—it’s anger porn for masochistic whites who think listening to people sneer about “white people” all day makes them culturally superior. Regardless of race, our kids deserve a world-class education, yet Ms. Walt prefers to promote the racist trope that racial equity and high educational achievement are somehow incompatible. Harmful.

    This podcast is racist.

    Shocked that Apple would allow a racist anti-white podcast to be featured in its podcast app. I knew the times had gone down this road, but Apple seemed more responsible. The title doesn’t say it’s just some white parents from half a century ago It’s just “white parents.” Imagine if in response to black gangs killing people I had a podcast called “nice black people” and the description said something like “want to know why the streets aren’t safe? It’s black people.” This is no different. Apple, you are promoting racism. Do better.

    informative, important, and refreshing

    it says a lot that there’s a lot of one star reviews reducing this podcast to creating a “false narrative.” as a NYC native who attended charter schools growing up, i think this an incredibly well researched piece of journalism covering a concerning topic in our modern world and public education. can’t wait to see more podcasts from this studio!

    Makes good observations but goes overboard on race factors

    The biggest predictor of a child’s educational success is parental income, not race. Of course race plays into so many things in our culture, including public schooling, and this series fleshes out some worthy observations of that. Economic class trumps it all however and yet it is only given a few sidebar mentions. A podcast needs subscribers though and focusing on “Nice White Parents” instead of “Nice Upper Middle Class Parents” makes it provocative and and gets more clicks. This podcast goes double down on our society’s current system of race relations: it’s ok to examine white behavior critically, and even poke fun at white people a bit, but it’s taboo to do the same of any other race, even if the evidence is there. With that limited racial approach it misses it’s mark to make change.

    Where are Asians?

    Where are Asians? Do you just pretend this minority groups doesn’t exist? Also a disadvantaged minority but academically high performing, professionally high achieving, Asians just can’t be included in the equation of any imaginary racial theories, right?

    More Liberal Propaganda

    The author is obviously looking to create relevance by delivering false narratives. I grew up in the south and there were MANY black people that succeeded in the public school system. Actually, they thrived! This was in a community of 50+% black. The consistent theme for under performing students was a broken family, both for white and black students. It’s never going to change until there is a belief that the parents are accountable. I guarantee one thing, this author is focused more on how they can monetize their narrative.
