Christian School in Dallas Hosts Racially Segregated School Clubs

Spencer Lindquist, The Federalist, February 1, 2022

Documents obtained by The Federalist reveal that Parish Episcopal School, an elite private school in Dallas, Texas, hosted racially segregated school clubs and targeted a student who objected. One faculty member with power over school curriculum has also expressed extreme anti-cop and anti-white sentiments, and the school has ties to far-left organizations.


A flyer from the school explains the purpose and nature of the racially segregated student groups, called “affinity groups.” It notes that the groups are open to “all upper school students” before going on to insist the groups remained racially segregated, saying “we only ask that you respect that if you do not identify as the members of that group, please do not attend that meeting group.”

Affinity groups were hosted for a number of races and sexual behaviors, including for Hispanic and African American students, as well as for those who identify as LGBTQ+. An affinity group was also hosted for white students, and was labeled “White Allies for Racial Equity.”

Racially segregated school clubs are only one of the numerous outgrowths of the leftwing orthodoxy that dominates the school.


While the school’s diversity statement claims the institution cultivates “respect for the rich variety of people and points of view that exist in our complex global society,” remarks from social studies teacher Jania Hoover suggest such respect may be lacking not only among the school’s administration, but among faculty as well.

Hoover condemned both police officers and those who support them in a post where she exclaimed “F-ck the police” (profanity altered for publication). She followed up the vitriolic statement with more hatred, saying “If you believe the police are good because YOU know a good one, f-ck you too.”

In addition to anti-police bias, the teacher also has publicly expressed anti-white bias. In one post reflecting on a conference she attended called Be About It, Hoover condemned all white people as racist, noting that “Even well-meaning white people are complicit in racism and white supremacy.” She also states, “I was wary when I saw white people hosting, but most of the speakers are black.”

Hoover isn’t just a teacher at Parish Episcopal School. The institution has trusted her to develop curriculum as a subject area coordinator. {snip}

Hoover also openly said she was preparing to teach critical race theory to her students, noting that she was doing so specifically because CRT had come under fire.

Hoover made good on her commitment to teaching the divisive theory. A slide from Hoover also reveals a QR code that leads to a document that lists several CRT resources that Hoover uses in class.

One such resource is the Zinn Education Project, named after Howard Zinn, a Marxist academic and activist. Another is Liberate History, which provides teachers with lesson plans that are explicitly grounded in CRT.

Yet another is Teaching Tolerance, a project of the activist Southern Poverty Law Center, which has been renamed Learning for Justice. It also seeks to embed CRT in America’s schools.


Here’s how one student was treated by the school’s leadership when he took a vocal stand against identity politics by selecting a statement from Theodore Roosevelt as his senior quote.

It read, “In this country we have no place for hyphenated Americans,” a clear display of a belief in a unifying American identity that cuts across the racial fault lines the left has so effectively seized upon. {snip}

Following outrage from some students, the administration mercilessly attacked their own student, issuing a letter of condemnation signed by Monaco that decried the high school senior’s selected quote as ethnically and racially insensitive and “inarguably offensive.”
