Does the El Centro Elementary School District have a policy in effect that bans daddy-daughter dances? My kids attend Harding Elementary in El Centro, and as the school year is kicking off, I was disappointed to find out the principal canceled the Father-Daughter Dance based on an El Centro School District policy that bans these events since they discriminate based on gender.

Does El Centro School District have such a policy in effect, and why would they adopt such a policy? I would think in this #MeToo era parents would want to reinforce to their daughters how they should be treated by men, and these dances offer an opportunity for dads to give daughters their time, attention and make unforgettable memories that they’ll cherish.
