    Hiring someone that young to be in charge of a school is something we don't see up here. You see why.

    Santa's a fat guy who gives out presents. I don't see him as religious.

    I don't like what my country is turning into, and I am helpless to do anything about it.

    Frustrating. We are just shotgunning stupid juice in America and it's sad to watch.

    Harvest Festival. For the love of Buddha, how can Thanksgiving, you know, being thankful that you live in a country that allows you to be that stupid, is somehow offensive to someone.

    I'm thoroughly confused by your country sometimes.

    Ps - I bet she doesn't mind getting thanksgiving as a paid holiday.

    I saw this shit earlier. My first thought is that I would send my kid to school every day in his Santa Claus sweatshirt that his grandma bought him that says "I believe" on it. He wore it to school today actually and his teachers loved it. Oh, and he has a Christmas party at school on Wednesday too.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Well, yeah. They asked me to come play some guitar for his class.

    But in all seriousness most Americans still believe that Thanksgiving and Christmas should be celebrated. I'm glad my child's school reflects the values of my community. I'll tell you this - if my kids went to the school in this article there would be a pissed off dad in the principal 's office first thing in the morning.

    Thumbs up

    I am very familiar with this area in Brooklyn. She's lucky they didn't drag her out and hang her from a lamp post.


    Sanity wins: School tosses principal’s ban on Santa, Pledge of Allegiance

    Sanity — and Santa — have been restored at a Brooklyn public elementary school where St. Nick was banned, the Pledge of Allegiance was dropped and Thanksgiving was replaced with a “harvest festival.”

    The good news arrived at PS 169 in Sunset Park on Monday morning, a day after The Post exposed the bizarre PC extremism of Principal Eujin Jaela Kim.


    District 15 Superintendent Anita Skop stormed in the front door at 9:50 a.m., and minutes later, two fifth-grade boys were brought to the main office to lead a recital over the public-address system of the Pledge of Allegiance, teachers told The Post.

    As The Post reported on Sunday, the pledge hadn’t been said over the loudspeakers since the beginning of the school year. Kim, 33, became principal in May 2014.

    Santa Claus is now reinstated at the school, and Department of Education officials said on Monday that the Pledge of Allegiance will be recited over the PA system every morning, in response to concerns from the community.

    “It never would have happened if The Post didn’t do the story. That’s the only way we got our voices heard,” PTA President Mimi Ferrer said.

    “I’m ecstatic that Santa can come back. Hopefully, he can make a visit to the kids in our school for our winter celebration on Thursday.”

    At a school leadership- team meeting last week, Kim told staffers, “Do not celebrate Christmas, do not celebrate gift-gifting, do not celebrate Santa. We need to be respectful,” according to a school source.

    “Christmas is a Christian celebration and something that is tied to religion,” Kim told them, according to the source.

    DOE officials said on Monday that PS 169 administrators were mistaken in believing that Santa could not be used as a holiday symbol.

    Only depictions of religious figures or texts are banned.

    “We work to foster inclusive communities in our schools that welcome students and families, and celebrate the diverse values and traditions of all New Yorkers,” DOE spokeswoman Devora Kaye said in a statement.

    “This principal continues to work closely with her school community to ensure PS 169 is an inclusive school, meet students’ and families’ needs, and celebrate the values that make her community and New York City great,” Kaye said.

    Officials said the school e-mailed staffers new guidelines on Monday allowing the use of Santa Claus “as a holiday symbol with secular dimensions.”

    “I apologize for any confusion this may have caused,” Kim wrote in the e-mail.

    I can understand Christmas (though banning it is still stupid), but Thanksgiving? This person needs to be shipped back to whatever country she escaped from, and if by grace of God she was born here, perhaps she can be offered assistance in finding another country to call home. I know off the top of my head that Canada is out as they have Thanksgiving too. Perhaps some third world shithole where people are too busy dodging warring factions' gunfire to celebrate Thanksgiving will be more to her liking.

    That's just it. Most Americans do support and celebrate these things. But parents need to be willing to stand up for what they believe in and affect change. Vote school board members out that need to go and get school administrators out of there that need to go. It's ridiculous how PC our country is getting, pandering to a very vocal minority of asshats who get offended by EVERYTHING at the drop of a hat.
