Here’s a perfect example of multi-culturalism and political correctness run completely amok. In advance of Valentines Day, a Massachusetts elementary school has banned the celebration of every holiday days citing “cultural equality issues.”
from Todd Starnes:
Boys and girls at a Massachusetts elementary school have been banned from bringing Valentine’s Day candy or cards over cultural equality issues and federal guidelines regulating candy.
Parents of students at Salemwood Elementary School in Malden, Mass, received a letter informing them of the policy – that impacts not just Valentine’s Day – but all holidays.
“We have many different nationalities, cultures and languages spoken,” Principal Carol Keenan told Fox News. “Because of that we don’t honor specific holidays.”
Keenan said she did not want some students feeling left out.
“This is done with all good intentions – to have all students be accepted, to have all students feel like they belong,” she said.
You know what they say about “good intentions,” right? The road to hell is paved with them.
