Megyn Kelly says she's pulling kids out of $56k NYC private school because of 'woke' leftism and plans to leave the city

MEGYN Kelly said on Monday that she's pulling her kids out of a New York City private school because of "woke" leftism.

Speaking on her podcast The Megyn Kelly Show, the 50-year-old journalist revealed she has removed her two sons from their $56,000-a-year private school and plans to escape the city.

Kelly, 50, pulled her sons – 11-year-old Edward and seven-year-old Thatcher Bray – from their school on the Upper West Side.

The former Fox News anchor told listeners: "It’s so out of control on so many levels. After years of resisting it, we’re going to leave the city.

“The schools have always been far-left, which doesn’t align with my own ideology, but I didn’t really care, most of my friends are liberals, it’s fine.

"I come from a Democrat family, I’m not offended at all by the ideology, and I lean center-left on some things.

“But they’ve gone around the bend. I mean, they have gone off the deep end." 

In addition to her two sons, Kelly has a nine-year-old daughter named Yardley – who she also plans to take out of her school.

The call to take her students out of their NYC school comes after a letter – written by Orleans Public Education Network Executive Director Nahliah Webber – circulated the school's "diversity group."

The letter – titled 'If You Really Want to Make a Difference in Black Lives, Change How You Teach White Kids' – was shared in an education blog post on June 29.

Webber stressed the importance of an "urgency for school reform for White kids."

She also insisted: "There is a killer cop sitting in every school where white children learn."

Webber used her opinion piece to describe what she is "tired of."

She wrote: "I’m tired of White people reveling in their state-sanctioned depravity, snuffing out Black life with no consequences and then having the nerve to tell Black children that they are 'behind' and need to work harder.

"I’m tired of White people telling Black kids that they need to be held 'accountable,' yet killer cops go free when they take Black life and White teachers go free when they miseducate Black kids.

"I’m tired of White people taking their violent culture, standards and metrics into Black spaces and telling Black children that they don’t measure up. Because who is really failing here?"

Kelly ranted on her podcast about the controversial letter.

She questioned: "Which boy in my kid’s school is the future killer cop? Is it my boy? Which boy is it?

"Because I don’t happen to believe that they’re in there.”

Last week, Kelly slammed anchor Chris Cuomo as the "chief nurse assisting CNN's suicide" in a furious Twitter spat.

She attacked Cuomo after he retweeted a video of actor George Hahn poking fun at her remarks on the election and Trump supporters.
