Outrageous Principal Bans Valentine's Day, Other 'Dominant' Holidays
Wave goodbye to Cupid, kids.
Students at a Minnesota elementary school this year will not be allowed to celebrate Valentine’s Day – or any other “dominant holiday,” according to reports.
Principal Scott Masini of Bruce Vento Elementary School in St. Paul issued his recent decision in a letter to the kids’ families, according to The Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
“I have come to the difficult decision to discontinue the celebration of the dominant holidays until we can come to a better understanding of how the dominant view will suppress someone else’s view,” he wrote.
The principal noted that one of his concerns was “whether or not this practice is encroaching on the educational opportunities of others and threatening the culture of tolerance and respect for all.”
Many on Outnumbered this afternoon, however, expressed skepticism at the decision.
The school is treating Valentine’s Day “like a peanut allergy,” Harris Faulkner commented.
Judge Jeanine, who made an appearance on today’s episode, also weighed in.
“What are we stopping, affection? Having feelings for another human being?” she said. “The whole concept is crazy.”
