Wow two threads about this...Since this is brought up again, I did some more research and schools have been cancelling Halloween for years all over
the US. I found an article dating back to 2004. So it's not part of the woke movement. Do some research like you do for ivermectin.
But the general argument from people is if 15% of the students are suffering from the holiday and 85% of the students are having fun, then screw the
15% to hell!!!!
Like wow you really want to work in education with that attitude? Actually it's more of a denial there is no 15% of kids who feel uncomfortable during
the holiday. The argument is everyone loves Halloween which is totally stupid. I just made a friend from Africa and they're so unfamiliar with
Halloween, they're like, "What is this holiday you celebrate?"
Halloween is defined as a Pagan holiday, but really seems like a Christian holiday looking into the history, and it became popular in the US when a
big wave of Irish and Scottish settlers came.
It also requires you to have friends and wilful parents. Most elementary age kids don't go trick or treating by themselves, they're in a group of
friends, and have a parent chaperone most times.
The naysayers are in denial about this. That all kids have friends and all kids have wilful parents is an inaccurate claim. If it's not denial, it's
really who cares about those kids that don't have friends or wilful parents.
I wonder how much student behavior changes during the month of October. The 15% worried about the upcoming holiday they are forced to participate in,
and the 85% who can't focus because they are too excited to dress up, essentially have a non-educational school day and eat tons of sugar.
