Why Schools Chancellor David Banks removed Manhattan education council member behind controversial trans athlete resolution

Schools Chancellor David Banks took the unusual step Friday of giving two parent members the boot from their local community education councils (CECs) for violating departmental policies.

One of the expelled parents was Maud Maron, a member of Manhattan’s Community Education Council (CEC) 2, who was ousted based on a complaint filed under a rule called Chancellor’s Regulation D-210, which prohibits misconduct, harassment and discrimination. Maron had previously introduced and supported a resolution at CEC 2 targeting transgender athletes.
