District Hiring 'Whiteness' Superintendent to Root Out White Supremacy

The Saint Louis Park School District, located in the suburbs of Minneapolis, is hiring an assistant superintendent to "examine the presence of Whiteness" in the district. 


It's a good gig, paying between $134,000 and $201,000. 

It seems that "Whiteness" is a pressing problem for the district, which no doubt explains why there has been so much learning loss in the public schools over the past few years. Enrollment of White students has been dropping, with only 53% of the students being White, and as they have fled to other districts, the problem of White Supremacy has gotten worse, leading to horrible test scores:

In St. Louis Park Public School Dist., 55% of elementary students tested at or above the proficient level for reading, and 50% tested at or above that level for math. Also, 52% of middle school students tested at or above the proficient level for reading, and 37% tested at or above that level for math. And 58% of high school students tested at or above the proficient level for reading, and 34% tested at or above that level for math

It's a troubling thing, to see how Whiteness is harming minority students, and the district is working hard to root it out. As the student body and staff become less White, Whiteness has become an increasing problem. 

No doubt testing is a White concept too, so perhaps eliminating measurement of student performance will help improve student success rates. It's worth trying, and a good antiracist school superintendent could look for other ways to ensure success for students. 


A job description at St. Louis Park Public Schools says the school district is seeking an assistant superintendent who can “examine the presence and role of ‘Whiteness’ in systems and structures.”

Posted last week on the school’s job board, the position of assistant superintendent will receive an annual salary between $134,141 and $201,212. The position will be a part of the superintendent’s leadership team and will have significant influence in how the school district operates.

However, the job description indicates that the role will have a very particular focus. The first sentence of the position’s summary says, “the Assistant Superintendent proactively supports the Superintendent to create and communicate anti-racist structures and systems, works to interrupt systems of oppression, and serves as a role model for culturally relevant pedagogy.”

The school district continues its summary of the position by saying the assistant superintendent must be “unwaveringly committed to anti-racist actions and use data to adapt and sustain their efforts towards racial equity to plan, direct, and coordinate action to achieve the mission and strategic objectives.”

As a matter of fact, words such as “anti-racist,” “racial equity,” and other related phrases appear in the job description over a dozen times.

Proficiency in math and reading are disastrously low, which goes to prove that requiring students to learn math and reading are White supremacist as well. I strongly encourage the district to consider dropping these subjects and focus on more important things like ensuring that students become Queer activists who support Hamas and prepare to riot for public health. 


Minnesota claims to be among the best states in the nation when it comes to education, but that, too, is undoubtedly due to its being drenched in Whiteness that must be rooted out. Shockingly, most White states in the nation also happen to perform better than average on test scores, proving that they too, are White supremacist. Somehow, Asians, who score highest on performance measures, are immune to White supremacy or have become White themselves

Rooting out Whiteness from education is second only to rooting out heterosexuality, with emotional resilience comes in third in priority for elimination. 

Minnesota has among the worst achievement gaps between White and minority students in the nation, and the problem has been the prevalence of Whites in the population. Luckily, the importation of refugees is slowly changing the demographics, and with that change, there has been a significant reduction in focus on educational attainment and a greater focus on ideological indoctrination. 

I sincerely hope that more school districts can focus on the problem of Whiteness.
