So this outrage is ok because america?

That is exactly the idea behind the rights PC, you can't say anything against america, which is my entire point.
Jackson is 80% white, it is freaking wyoming, so lets try and keep that in perspective before you keep talking about pandering to illegals.

It is one freaking day during a spirit week, I think we will rebound as a nation. No one is canceling the 4th of July.

Buy, you're not a bully as long as you have an American Flag in your hand.

Screw all those who made a decision to do something else.

Control issues? Oh my, half the people in this thread are socialist or otherwise enjoying the idea of America day being cancelled because a handful of students might not like an annual tradition of celebrating America, don't lecture me about control. This is a discussion board and you seem happy to tell people what you think should be happening. Nope you don't get to lecture me about control.
It is socialist totalitarian movements which seek to micro manage every aspect of our lives right down to celebrating one day in a school.

" high school students telling the Progressives where to get off"

Nothing personal...but the reality disconnect seems profound here..

You do realize that the "high school students" decided to nix this day? They did a survey of the entire student body and they voted against it..

Pssst.."Cowboy Day" actually beat out "America Pride Day"...

Now this is where you return to your conspiracy theory that secret socialists who hate America actually conspired to rig the survey of the student body of a High School in Jackson Hole Wyoming as a step toward converting this country to communism.

And this is where I return to my first sentence...the reality disconnect seems profound.

Actually, to be factual: 1 Toga/Pajama Day, 2 Lumberjack Day . . .

But, same difference.

Thinking students chose what they want.

But, of course, they're just mind controlled by socialist public school and the Flag Waiving Bullies had to set them straight.

Whatever Indy I've been to the planning meetings and see how they operate I know how Delphi operates I know how they use surveys to manufacture consensus. Where did any of these articles say the whine student body was surveyed? Here on our community the planning board extended the park county survey to residents of another city and county. Why would they do that while obscuring the vuntary survey from the ranchers in our county? You should have seen yhevrZnchers who came in to the courthouse and wanted to know why they were not better informed and the meetings were being held at times that the ranchers were all working their property. This is a ranching community after all and so their input is vital to having true results. Amazing how some people insist on such patronizing cr$& when we know better.

See you are getting out if context now, the context here is one day in a school in Wyoming that just so happened to be called American day.
But don't let facts get in the way.

Notwithstanding the patronizing here, some others may be more open minded to learn something

Consensus methods such as the Delphi survey technique are being employed to help enhance effective decision-making in health and social care. The Delphi survey is a group facilitation technique, which is an iterative multistage process, designed to transform opinion into group consensus. It is a flexible approach, that is used commonly within the health and social sciences, yet little guidance exists to help researchers undertake this method of data collection. This paper aims to provide an understanding of the preparation, action steps and difficulties that are inherent within the Delphi. Used systematically and rigorously, the Delphi can contribute significantly to broadening knowledge within the nursing profession. However, careful thought must be given before using the method; there are key issues surrounding problem identification, researcher skills and data presentation that must be addressed. The paper does not claim to be definitive; it purports to act as a guide for those researchers who wish to exploit the Delphi methodology.

You act like we are ignorant to the fact surveys can be skewed. We are not.

You're just taking this to a level of ridiculousness.

The high school student counsel and administrators made an informed decision by their chosen method.

They didn't choose the 1st and 2nd choice either.

Seems you'd force "beat over the head" bullying patriotism.



The JHHS student council and JHHS administration selected days to ensure support of TCSD’s goal of ensuring everyone has a safe, caring, and healthy environment.

Just out of curiousity, what exactly is celebrated on American Pride Day?
I thought Americans already have Independance Day and such.
No offense intended, just want to know.

Who knows, this was just theme they had planned for the day during a spirit week.
Spirit weeks usually have 5 different themed days leading up to homecoming game/dance or some other big football game.

Ok, thank you.
I'm not accustomed to these traditions, but always curious how things work abroad.
And I always like to hear it from people who live there instead of "googling" it.
