    Just sad. Most schools are this way now, just no announcements about it.

    The sad thing is, this garbage no longer comes as a surprise.

    Brooklyn school allows Santa Claus decorations to return after principal caused outrage by trying to ban Jolly Old St Nick
    • Principal Eujin Jaela Kim, 33, of PS 169 in Brooklyn had outlawed angels, Santa and stars in decorations so as to be 'sensitive to diversity'
    • New York City Department of Education prohibits displays that 'depict images of deities, religious figures or religious texts'
    • Santa Claus has been designated an 'religious figure' by staff in the primary school, though education officials said he is secular and allowed
    • PS 169 will also reinstate school-wide Pledge of Allegiance after complaints that the practice disappeared when Kim became principal

    That's why I home schooled among so many other reasons....

    Sept I didn't get paid 10k a year per kid like our schools here get from the tax pool.
