School faces backlash for canceling father-daughter dance to follow gender guidelines

A New York elementary school is feeling the burn — including from Donald Trump Jr. — for canceling a father-daughter dance to adhere to state gender guidelines. P.S. 65 in Staten Island, N.Y., scheduled its “Father/Best Guy & Daughter Dance” for Feb. 9. However, it was suddenly axed, according to the New York Post, when the Parent-Teacher Association became concerned that it violated gender guidelines established by the New York City Department of Education in March 2017.
