Too politically correct?
A principal at Manchester Elementary School inNebraska recently sent out a memo to the staff about what is and isn't acceptable at the school during the holiday season.
Basically, her goal was to remove anything with religious themes . . . and that included candy canes.
Why? Quote, "Historically, the shape is 'J' for Jesus. The red is the blood of Christ, and the white is a symbol of his resurrection." Parents flooded the district with calls. But as extreme as the principals reasoning was . . . the school district's response seems pretty extreme too.
They wound up SUSPENDING the principal while they investigate. Oh, and they've gotten so many ANGRY calls that they're putting police in the school on the outside chance that some misguided person tries something. Ya. Merry Xmas.
