There will be no father daughter dance at PS 65 in Stapleton this year.
The event has been canceled and replaced by what the school is calling a Dolphin Dance, one that is open to everyone. The Department of Education says it's all in an effort to promote inclusivity in all school related events.
That's not sitting well with some, including Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, who fired off a letter to city Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina asking her to reconsider the gender-neutral guidelines.
Assemblywoman Malliotakis joined Community Education Council President Mike Reilly to discuss the matter.
