Revital Zilonka, an education instructor at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro, requires all students in her "Institution of Education" class to state their personal and professional commitment to social justice in an eight-page essay. Her class syllabus also provides a list of feminist and LGBTQ organizations to "like" on Facebook. The class is required to receive a k-12 teaching license in the state.
