Teachers answer mandatory ‘White Privilege Survey’ in Colorado schools |
AURORA, Colo. – The Cherry Creek School District is forcing employees to gauge their “white privilege” with a controversial survey, and many aren’t very happy about it.

I can turn on the television or open to the front page of the newspaper and see people of my race widely and positively represented.
When I am told about our national heritage or about “civilization,” I am shown that people of my race made it what it is.
I can go into most supermarkets and find the staple foods which fit with my racial/ethnic traditions; I can go into any hairdresser’s shop and find someone who can cut my hair. …
Cherry Creek School District spokeswoman Tustin Amole said the district has used the survey for diversity training on “opportunity gaps” between students of different races since 2003, and noted that 45 percent of the district’s students are not white.
