The academic left is still going down this road and throwing huge money at it.

Stony Brook U receives $700k state grant to push ‘diversity’ in K-12 leadership
Stony Brook University was recently awarded a $700,000 grant from the New York State Education Department, which it plans to use to increase diversity in K-12 leadership.
The program seeks to “integrate” diversity and inclusion into K-12 schools, both in leadership and beyond.
“The grant’s objectives are to help create a pipeline for emerging school leaders, to conduct and disseminate research on the effective strategies being used in the field, and to foster new and better leadership skills to integrate diversity and inclusion efforts deeply into school priorities, culture and operations.” an announcement on Stony Brook’s Website read.
Goals to achieve this include creating an online training program (although curriculum details are unspecified), especially recruiting members of “underrepresented groups” to be placed in school leadership, providing statewide development opportunities for school leadership, and enlisting current school leaders to put on “discussions about the challenges and solutions to diversify the leadership pipeline.”
All of this is aimed to address an alleged “shortage of diverse and well-prepared K-12 school leaders who are prepared to support varied student learning needs.”
“Representation is critical to providing an equitable, high-quality education, and learning from diverse education leaders provides real, relatable examples for young learners,” NYSED Commissioner Dr. Betty A. Rosa said. “The Department continues to work to strengthen accessible pathways for educators whose diversity reflects the rich culture of our students and communities.”
