Santa Claus is banned. The Pledge of Allegiance is no longer recited. “Harvest festival” has replaced Thanksgiving, and “winter celebrations” substitute for Christmas parties.
New principal Eujin Jaela Kim has given PS 169 in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, a politically correct scrub-down, to the dismay of teachers and parents.
“We definitely can’t say Christmas, nothing with Christmas on it, nothing with Santa,”
PTA president Mimi Ferrer said administrators told her. “No angels. We can’t even have a star because it can represent a religious system, like the Star of David.”
Kim, 33, did not return a call or email seeking comment.
Principal Eujin Jaela Kim
A memo last month from assistant principal Jose Chaparro suggested a “harvest festival instead of Thanksgiving or a winter celebration instead of a Christmas party.” He urged staff to “be sensitive of the diversity of our families. Not all children celebrate the same holidays.”
Ninety-five percent of the 1,600 kids at PS 169 are Asian or Hispanic.
Businesses won't allow that to happen. They'll just choose to call it something else so they can keep the revenue, and so people will still have an excuse to "use" the day designated as Christ's birthday to spend extravagant amounts of money, instead of celebrating the reason for the season...
PTA president Mimi Ferrer blasted Principal Eujin Jaela Kim over this Christmas issue.
Whereas before there was none, now there is the beginning of some actual pushback to political correctness.
Like it or not, I attribute that to one man: Donald Trump.
Absent the recent conduct of Mr Trump in response to the manner in which he is conducting his campaign and the focus he has brought to particular issues, I suspect the backlash to such politically correct behavior would not be building, much less being named.
And yes, there is pushback to Principal Kim’s position.
New York's School Administrators Charlotte Danielson’s
Framework for Teaching Evaluation Instrument- Common Core http://www.nysed.gov/administrators The Framework for Teaching is designed to help districts promote a common definition and understanding of excellence in teaching, one that everyone—teachers, administrators, and the larger community—can easily comprehend. Charlotte Danielson developed the Framework for Teaching Evaluation Instrument in 2011 and further enhanced it in 2013 to facilitate evaluations, and consequently has enhanced the language of her original Framework throughout to be as clear as possible. In addition, beginning with the 2011 Edition, she added critical attributes and possible examples of teaching at each performance level for each component. The definitions and expectations for each domain and component within each performance level are clear and precise, intentionally designed to be understood by all, regardless of role, position, or experience level. The 2013 Edition- In addition to tighter language to assist evaluators in making clear distinctions between performance levels, the 2013 Edition now includes specific language around the instructional implications of the Common Core State Standards. The Framework for Teaching has always been grounded in student learning and included the big concepts of the Common Core. Now the 2013 Edition includes specific rubric language, critical attributes, and teaching and learning examples that help schools and districts identify instruction that leads to student learning in the context of the Common Core.
Common Core or Common Core Values, was founded in Canada, and I do remember a issue that the UN had with this Americans' faith in God, and in their Constitution, that faith in God offended non believers of God.

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham
No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.
The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.
We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.
Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.
Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process.#ImpeachmentHearings
Today another poll was released with similar results.
Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.
1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."
Let's recast that last phrase
Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump...
This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.
This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
