Teachers in New York need 100 training hours to complete the Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) requirement. Some credit hours are available to count towards the requirement if they attend a politically motivated sessions hosted by the Brooklyn Public Library and run by Dave Edwards. Dave Edwards is the Founder of the organization, Gender Inclusive Schools. This organization conducts training to teachers and parents to affirm LGBT+ students and provide an inclusive environment. In a section of this organization’s website, it says “School personnel should speak with the student first before discussing a student’s gender nonconformity or transgender status with the student’s parent or guardian.” and also “School personnel should discuss with the student how the school should refer to the student, e.g., appropriate pronoun use, in written communication to the student’s parent or guardian.”.
Included among these “resources” are various demands rooted in the tenets of critical race theory. Gross has advocated for the eradication of America’s borders, which she refers to as “invisible man-made ideas that colonizers created.” The same post instructs children to imagine “a world where no one owns land.”
One post includes a video of young children protesting in a classroom with signs that read “No Trump” while another post reads “less teaching kids to ‘push through’ and more teaching them to ‘push back.’”
