Fury as $47,000-a-year Manhattan school forces juniors to attend compulsory PORN lessons

A $47,000-a-year private school once attended by Barron Trump forced juniors to attend a compulsory workshop on porn, whose subjects included incest roleplay and OnlyFans. 

The students at Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School (CGPS) on Manhattan’s Upper West Side were told to watch a slideshow entitled, ‘Pornography Literacy: An intersectional focus on mainstream porn.’ 

That workshop was held on May 5 by Justine Ang Fonte, the director of Health & Wellness at another Manhattan private school, Dalton, where she teaches first- and second-grade health.

As part of the May 5 lecture at Columbia, students learned how porn takes care of ‘three male vulnerabilities.’

Youngsters were also shown statistics on the ‘orgasm gap’ showing straight women have fewer orgasms with their partners than gay men or lesbians, and photos of partially-nude women, some of whom were in bondage to analyze ‘What is porn and what is art?’ 

Another slide cited various genres of porn, such as ‘incest-themed,’ consensual or ‘vanilla,’ ‘barely legal,’ ‘kink’ and BDSM. 

Additionally, the slideshow included a list of the most-searched pornographic terms in 2019, including ‘anal,’ ‘gangbang’ and even ‘stepmom,’ and discussed OnlyFans, where ‘content creators’ share photos and videos of themselves naked or having sex with subscribers for a monthly fee.

‘We were all like ‘What?’ an unnamed student told The New York Post, which obtained the slideshow. ‘Everyone was texting each other: ‘What the hell is this? It’s so stupid.’

The slideshow presented to students included images of partially-nude women, asking students if it was 'art or porn?'

The student added that the lesson took place ‘not long before’ Advanced Placement tests and ‘I had to miss both my AP classes for this.’

Most of the 120 students, between the ages of 16 and 17, who attended the lecture watched it on Zoom from home.

Some of those students’ parents were able to sit in on the workshop, and were stunned by what unfolded. Students who were at the school were ordered in to the gym to watch it on laptops. 

They were asked to answer questions about the lesson in the Zoom chat, a student said, ‘but we were all side-chatting in group chat nd tons of kids thought it was so dumb that they sent the link to their friends all over the city and they were logging on with the password.’

Many parents were appalled by the discussion, with one telling the Post, ‘none of the parents knew this was planned. We were completely left in the dark.

‘It makes us wonder what else the school is up to,’ the unnamed mother said.

Another added: ‘It’s outrageous that the school is introducing pornography into a mainstream classroom and starting to indoctrinate kids.

‘The goal of this is to disrupt families,’ she said, questioning, ‘Why is the school making porn a priority as opposed to physics, art literature or poetry?’ 

According to her website, Fonte, 35, likes to revel ‘in disrupting health education,’ and believes ‘it is the responsibility of comprehensive health education to be about social justice because health is a human right.’

‘When I’m building with schools, I develop health programs that are intersectional, anti-racist sex positive, multidisciplinary, stigma-busting and relevant.’ 

Her workshop appears to have been based on a 2016 program on ‘pornography literacy’ developed by Boston’s Health Commission. 

School officials later apologized to parents for the lecture, with headmaster Dr. William Donohue saying they were not aware of what the lesson would entail.

He wrote that the ‘context and tone of the presentation did not represent our philosophy, which is to educate our students in ways that promote personal development and overall health, as well as to express respect for them as individuals.

The Dalton School, where Fonte teaches health, has come under fire in recent months for its use of the Critical Race Theory and the headmaster had to step down

‘It was unfortunate that we did not better inform ourselves of the speaker’s specific content in advance,’ Donohue continued in his email to parents. ‘In this case, the speaker did not align with our unique CGPS mission and for this, I apologize.

‘Going forward, we will certainly learn from this experience.’ 

Parents at CGPS say the school has so-far held out on many of the ‘woke’ policies that have caused clashes at other elite US schools. 

The school is said to be on the verge of hiring a diversity, equity and inclusion director, with parents pushing back against such an appointment over fears it will lead to extreme lessons on social issues.  

Officials at Dalton – the other Manhattan private school where Fonte works – insisted their establishment ‘does not teach … the type of curriculum that is being suggested.

‘Our health classes do teach students important lessons related to body positivity, consent and boundary setting with friends and others,’ a spokesman told the paper.

Dalton is one of a number of schools that has come under fire over the last year for its decision to teach critical race theory.

Parents were also outraged at the school’s decision to continue with online-only lessons after other pricey rivals had gone back to in-person teaching, amid concerns over staff ‘safety.’

 In December, the school published an anti-racism manifesto, saying the school hired 12 diversity officers and proposing ‘Black liberation’ courses and classes challenging white supremacy.

It also suggested that if black students were not performing at the same level as white students by 2023, it would abolish some of its courses entirely.

In response, some parents wrote an anonymous letter to school officials claiming ‘Every class this year has had an obsessive focus on race and identity,’ and ‘many of these classes feel more akin to Zoom corporate sensitivity-training than to Dalton’s intellectually engaging curriculum.’

Dalton headmaster Jim Best stepped down last month amid the controversy, and a math teacher at Grace Church School was pulled from his classes after criticizing the school’s use of the Critical Race Theory.

This appears to be the first time Columbia has come under fire for its lesson plans, but it is currently facing other controversies.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance issued a subpoena against the school earlier this month over $500,000 in fee payments the Trump Organization made for its CFO’s grandchildren.

Donald Trump’s CFO, Allen Weisselberg, allegedly paid school feeds for his grandkids as a form of ‘financial assistance’ to his son Barry.

Prosecutors now want to know if those payments should have been declared as gifts or donations, which would have made them eligible for tax.

Insiders say investigators are trying to put pressure on Weisselberg in the hopes he will turn on the former president. 

There is no suggestion that Weisselberg has done anything wrong.
